AUTONOMY, MOVEMENT AND THE MORE-THAN-HUMAN
For our 2nd Edition, we are screening seven films from around the world that centre on interrelated themes of Autonomy, Movement and the More-than-human.
We start on Tuesday morning in the Amazon with AUTONOMIA MARÓ, before tracing Timor-Leste’s healing springs in RESTORING THE SPIRIT. In the afternoon we head to Portuguese underwater territory with ABYSSAL, then downstream of Cambodia’s Lower Sesan 2 dam with BEYOND THE DAM’S RESERVOIR. On Wednesday, we swap for dryer lands, washing up on the Finnish Archipelago of ÖRÖ, and into the growing deserts of DROUGHTLANDS and STUDENT HUNGER: A SILENT CRISIS.
In their own way, each film explores people’s relationships to place, to power, to environment—and to people’s struggles to navigate and find their place within ever more precarious worlds. We thank all the filmmakers for submitting their wonderful films, and hope you enjoy this year’s shorts.
Note: Several of this year’s films are screening in-person only.
