INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION: On Body And Soul
INFLORESCENCE [SLOWLOOP-06], dir. Nicolaas Schmidt
These short works lean into the expressions of love, vulnerability and solidarity that galvanise and nourish us in the face of isolation.
Whether it’s a politically persecuted gay man in Tunisia forging community, a tender yet unsentimental depiction of a mother’s love, or a flower caught in a thunderstorm, these films act as a tonic for the trials and tribulations of an eventful year.
Featuring the concluding three chapters of Meriem Bennani and Orian Barki's 2 Lizards, and Sylvia Schedelbauer's lushly stereoscopic expression of the nowness and newness of love.
Programmed by Tom Grimshaw and the international selection committee. 84'
The programme contains distressing imagery, references to homophobia and transphobia, and flashing images.
Please note, the film Ecorce can only be accessed by UK audiences at the request of the filmmaker.
