Pixelling Memory / Ravisankar Kerala Varma / India / 2018 / 0:20:00

A self reflexice video essay in the form of video diary, which tries to archive different experiences of death and disappearance of people, through impressions of spaces forming a certain relation of signs which the filmmaker himself through ones own body and a scar in his own leg and through some personal photographs tries to retrieve through his own experience and fear of death. The narrative of this of the filmmaker's search eventually merges with a parable form.



 

The Animal That Therefore I Am / Bea de Visser / Netherlands / 2019 / 0:10:00

A self reflexice video essay in the form of video diary, which tries to archive different experiences of death and disappearance of people, through impressions of spaces forming a certain relation of signs which the filmmaker himself through ones own body and a scar in his own leg and through some personal photographs tries to retrieve through his own experience and fear of death. The narrative of this of the filmmaker's search eventually merges with a parable form.

"What does the animal see when it looks at me?" Three animals and a woman in an enclosed space. As they study each other, their own methods of communication create a wordless conversation. We view them in close-up and from various perspectives, with the woman as a solitary species in this universe.

A Plastic Bottle's Stair Dance / Mikhail Basov / 2018 / Russian Federaition / 0:05:19



A plastic bottle performs a stair dance, hopping up and down, tapping off wild rhythms like a Broadway dancer. At first glance, the bottle seems to be simply trashed around by wind gusts. But as the dance intensifies, it becomes more and more apparent that the bottle is rebelling against the wind, not following it. Finally, the bottle leaps into a different space, which has gently revealed its presence more than once during the dance, but seemed so far from this bustle and flurry and the chiaroscuro on the concrete steps.






 

Maria from the Mangroves (María de los Esteros) / Eugenio Gómez Borrero / Colombia / 2018 / 00:19:15



The story of a woman who, while extracting oysters from a mangrove, also unearths memories, songs and ghosts. But the mangrove that once was a larder of life has become the cemetery of those who refuse to leave the territory.
