Still from ANIME

ANIME

Dir: Arnaud Brisebois
Canada – 2016

We showed Arnaud Brisebois’ first short film Trotteur way back in April 2012, so it’s a pleasure to welcome him back in 2017. Anime follows two young people through a post-apocalyptic cityscape as they scavenge for food and shelter. Brisebois’ sense of visual style is stronger than ever.

Duration: 12:00

THE COMMITTEE

Norway/Finland/Sweden – 2016

Three delegates from Sweden, Norway and Finland are gathered in Lapland to decide on an art piece, which is to be placed where the three borders meet geographically. But the committee is in for a surprise.

AUDIBLE STATIC

Dir: Sai Selvarajan

Thaddeus is a teenager in love. Love comes with panic. Silence. Racing thoughts, but no words. Just, audible static. In the last days of analogue, Thaddeus finds a way to cheat the system.

Duration: 11:00


Still from 3 WAY (NOT CALLING)

3-WAY (NOT CALLING)
