After almost two years of looking for ways to exit our domestic space and enter a social one, we now find ourselves with the anxiety of trying to find an exit from etiquette, best behaviour and good chat. How do we claim access to a space - and if it’s not on our terms, do we adapt? Or cut and run?

Made possible through a unique UK-wide collaboration of national and regional publicly-funded film archives, Lost Connections draws on a century of archive footage that invites reflections on loss, loneliness, isolation, and expressions of desire, optimism, hope and renewal. It is not a film about the pandemic, it is a film about recovery, the human character, sadness and joy, what we really value, and our gradual reconnection with each other, our communities, and the world around us.

Aquí y allá is an essay film that studies what being at home means. The filmmaker uses photographs, maps and Google Earth to connect places around the globe; not just from her own past, but also from the complex migratory history of her family that stretches back to Hitler-era Germany and Mao's China. Reality and the virtual prove equally confusing: however much you zoom in, you never get closer to home.

Saudade! It doesn't matter how far we go; the more we grow, the more we strengthen the connection with our essences and our hearts. Luís Fernando, Jovani Furlan, Luanna Gondim and Maitê Nunes dance together as a shadow of one another, in an alien place that represents their introspectiveness. Pássaro Distante can be interpreted as how far we can go into our internal universe - as a distant bird.

The film looks to experiment with sequential photography as animation, the animation of architecture, the perspectives of the photographer in relation to their craft and to their subject, using voice to evoke personality and tone, and using sound texturally (bricks, the flash trigger, and the mixing of cement) to experiment with how sound changes and effects image.

The mother cares for seniors in their homes, where the ticking clock counts down the working day, between the frightening sounds of the heavy breathing that increase the fear of emptiness...

This poetic work explores the flaws of a society’s single viewpoint, in particular how a dominant ideology can be forced upon a younger generation.
