UK COMPETITION: I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know (at BFI)
PATRICK, dir. Luke Fowler
From the afrofuturist currents of carnival in the Bahamas, to heady teenagehood in the early Noughties, to the mellower cadences of Patrick Cowley’s San Francisco, these short works offer evocations and elegies of past lives and shared legacies.
Anchored in memory, both personal and collective, these films articulate how remembering informs our lives and the importance in, in Larry Achiampong’s (Relic 1) words, “going back for what has been left behind.”
Includes non-fictions from artist filmmakers Rhea Storr (A Protest, A Celebration, A Mixed Message) and Luke Fowler (Mum’s Cards), alongside more personal recollections from BFI NETWORK alumni Luna Carmoon and animator Gabriel Böhmer.

Please note, the films Here Is The Imagination of the Black Radical, Push This Button If You Begin to Panic and The Expulsion can only be accessed by UK audiences at the request of their filmmakers.
