INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION: Out Of Sight
Thursday 21st January 2021
HERE AND THERE, dir. Melisa Liebenthal
Between Google Maps montage, Great Depression-era found footage, and the ancestral rituals of the Muiná-Muruí people, these short films unearth hidden stories and secret histories, both personal and political.
Featurning new archival assemblage from Ken Jacobs (Star Spangled to Death), a metatextual video essay from @avocado_ibuprofen’s Jaakko Pallasvuo (Fruits of the Loom) and ethnographic fiction from Laura Huertas Millán (jeny303). Programmed by Tom Grimshaw and the international selection committee. 82'
This programme contains stereoscopic imagery.
Please note, the film Jíibie can only be accessed to UK audiences at the request of the filmmaker.
