Dark, bright, oneiric, witty, funny, lingering in the past, among ghostly visions, desires, dreams and nightmares,

Silver in the Churn
Length: 08:40 min
Directed by: Jasper Lee
Country of Origin: USA
A hypnotic audio-visual song in which the Southern landscape is used as a foundation for exploring superstition, ritual and the sacred. Drawing from research into Southeastern superstitions, the abstract lyrical quality of this lore is woven into an oblique dance through repetition and juxtapositon. Small bodily gestures reveal a map of relationships and trace the ways time and power shape the land and us.
Jasper Lee is an artist and musician from central Alabama whose work in filmmaking explores superstition and the transmission of knowledge in the deep South.
Length: 10:31 min
Directed by: Michael Higgins
Country of Origin: Greece
Although clearly filmed in our time, Olive uses the scratchy beauty of hand-processed celluloid to help evoke a mood of ancient ritual. A group of people gathered in the remote countryside are absorbed into frames that often resemble the hand tinted colours and decaying textures of unrestored early cinema. Cinema is made to haunt the present like a ghostly vision from the past.
Michael Higgins is a photographer, filmmaker and installation artist best known for his analogue film work. Having grown up in Ireland he studied at Dublin City University and Ireland’s National College of Art and Design. Higgins is interested in using the filmmaking process to rupture the reality of the everyday, skewing documentary and fiction in order to highlight alternative ways of seeing and experiencing.

Where do you come from
Length: 15:00 min
Directed by: Jun-Yuan Hong
Country of Origin: Taiwan
The film consists of the photographic narratives of individuals’ polaroid pictures taken at the time of their birth, which is used as the intertwining signifiers. A few of the selected actors came from broken families and had similar life experiences as the concept expressed in this work. In other words, the subjects in the images are not only a semiotic interpretation of role-playing but also a reiteration of life experiences that overlap with these actors.
Director Statement :
My film works have strong inner emotional problems. The main reason comes from my incomplete original family. Therefore, in the film, I like to construct these tangled feelings through close-up, and look for people with similar family situations, let them be my elements of the image that respond to and express their emotional state of facing family problems through the encounters of these different living individuals.
