Shorts: Film Is Memory

Part of the Shorts Strand

  • 15


Taking the manifold forms that memories and archives can employ as a starting point, this selection of works applies ingenious and creative approaches in order to explore these most elusive and contentious of notions. Considerations of the urban metropolis as a layered depositary for memories jostle alongside personal interrogations of filmic (auto)biography. How does culture speak through artefacts, and in what surprising ways can creative engagement with historical ephemera engender an arresting tension between past, present, and future?
