by Monica Panzarino, 4 minutes, 2016, USA. This performance of Barbra Streisand’s 1973 hit “The Way We Were” pairs a play on the word “memories” with real-time image and sound processing.

by Jane Topping, 10 minutes, 2016, Scotland, US premiere. Viewers are closer to their object of desire than ever. This work tests if this closeness amplifies or frustrates feelings of intimacy and ownership. The net and the screen are together creating a new form of desire which has yet to be clearly defined or interrogated.

by Caryn Cline, 12 minutes, 2017, USA. “All Flesh is Grass” experimentally documents a prairie restoration project in Missouri, combining source footage and handmade “botanicollage” film frames and reflecting on the filmmaker’s relationship with her father.



by Marko Ubovic, 7.5 minutes, 2017, Serbia, US premiere. This work is based on an iconic war photograph with the same name, taken, Roger Fenton in 1855. The film tries to understand the multilayered dimension of this war photograph and to contemplate the consequences of wars in general and an artist’s role in this world.



by Hannah Dawn Henderson, 17.75 minutes, 2017, UK/Netherlands, US premiere. In Search of an Axis is a film-essay that contemplates diasporic identity. This work studies the regurgitation of social dynamics and the body as political territory. Featuring a series of site-specific choreographies inspired, gestures of meditation and protest, the film’s loose narrative examines possibilities for resistance and liberation


by Caitlin Craggs, 6 minutes, 2017, USA. An exploration of sensory cinema through a portrait of the filmmaker. The subconscious intrudes... as it will often do.
