Premier amor / First love
Jules Carrin, Switzerland, 2017, 20’. HED Geneva School of Art and Desing.
This young couple knows vaguely that the love which bonds them can be their way of freeing themselves from the tenacious resentments and suspicions peculiar to this remote region of France, stigmatized as it is by a survival economy. But the social bonds that the adults forge are unexpectedly violent.
Andrey Klychnikov, Russia, 2017, 30’. Moscow School of New Cinema.
On the edge of the Earth, in forsaken lands, people live as if their spoken language has disappeared into oblivion. They live purposeless, routine lives, with no visible manifestations of mutual love and sympathy. A woman invites a man; the man accepts the woman. Their world shudders at the anxious cries of a bird that nobody sees, while in the abandoned house a sheep thief has made his appearance.
The Gilr with Two Heads.
Beatzabé García, United Kingdom, 2018, 16’. National Film and Television School.
Anne films herself on her mobile phone as she inspects her physique in the mirror, while her mother, Céline, also studies her body in the mirror. Both have contrasting ideals as to what the ideal female body type should be. Conflict emerges between mother, daughter and her mother's boyfriend when it is revealed that Anne herself uploaded to the Internet a video of herself training topless at the fight club.
Incofissoes / Unconfessions
Ana Galizia, Brazil, 2017, 22’. Universidade Federal Fluminense.
Luiz Roberto Galizia was an important figure in the theatre scene of the ‘70s and ‘80s. He was also my uncle, although I never knew him. This documentary endeavours to recover his life experience, based on old photographs and footage of films in super 8 which Uncle Luiz collected and which I found 30 years after his death.
Violeta + Guillermo
Óscar Vincentelli Chirimelli, Spain, 2018, 6’. Escuela SUR.
From the future, Violeta and Guillermo remember a night in 2018 when they danced until dawn.
