Shorts: Interrogation, Rebellion, Subversion

  • 89 mins

A teeming mass of images that explode and expose global systems and structures of power.

A roving manifesto that employs the filmic medium as a conductor through which to creatively interrogate the ecological, social and political implications of consumerism, power structures, freedom and art. This is provocative filmmaking that harnesses the image as a weapon of beauty and agitation to proffer vibrant, insightful and sometimes mischievous new perspectives that demand the involvement of the viewer as active participant, rather than passive consumer.

The Thinker in the Supermarket (Mislilac u supermarketu), Igor Simic/Serbia/2012/7 min
A stream of consciousness, quick-fire disassembly of the corporations and economic structures that direct and manipulate our consumption of packaged, supermarket food products.

Forgot Something? (¿Olvida Usted Algo?), Dalia Huerta Cano/Mexico/2012/28 min (In Competition)
Teeming with images that explode and expose the rhythms of life, ecology, environment and commerce. Juxtaposed spoken- word commentaries serve as inventories to elucidate the maze of themes the film traverses.

Nile Perch, Josh Gibson/USA, Uganda/2013/17 min
A languid, rhythmic 16mm film study of the Ugandan Nile Perch fishing trade, following the cycle through the fishing, processing and export stages.

Ancestral Delicatessen, Gabriel Folgado/Spain/2012/16 min
A visual unravelling of the toil involved in the artisanal, non- mechanised cultivation of luxury chestnut crops in rural Spain.

After Vegas, Laurence Bonvin, Stéphane Degoutin/Switzerland/2012/21 min
Roaming through empty lots and vacant, half- completed developments, derelict scrublands and fading neon signs, we observe the dilapidated flipside of exuberant Las Vegas.
