Shorts 8: Histories

  •   Various
  •   Ecuador | France | Germany | Portugal
  •   Expanded Visions, Shorts Program

Colonial memories, buried stories, and living landscapes populate this program of formally bold experimental short films.

Volcano: What Does a Lake Dream? (France/Portugal) contemplates a landscape’s chaotic potential as the film erupts in an explosion of celluloid and sound. The line between life and death blurs in the Ecuadorian rainforest as a man recalls a near-death experience in Sandoval’s Bullet (Ecuador/France). Ben Russell’s Color-Blind (France/Germany) shifts between French Polynesia and Brittany as it ruminates on the colonial past and post-colonial present.
