Shorts Program 2
Four short films about artists that show the diverse ways to express a take on the world. From finding one's heritage to tackling issues of immigration to large public art, these films show the people behind the work.

USA, 2014, 31 minutes
Director: Ashley James

Art in motion is celebrated in Kirk, a half-hour film portrait of the great kinetic sculptor, Jerome Kirk. Initially influenced by Alexander Calder, David Smith and Harry Bertoia, Kirk's work transcends those masters and sets entirely new standards in kinetic sculpture.  The film documents Kirk's work, his artistic process and captures more than sixty of his works while chronicling the passion and commitment that can follow one artist throughout a lifetime.

Los Olvidados
USA, 2014, 12 minutes
Director: David Feldman

Mexican American Artist Ramiro Gomez attempts to capture the Mexican immigrant experience by locating his artwork in authentic environments along the border. He relates both his own personal stories and those of the immigrants as he creates and places his art. This film follows the artist as he uses his work to document those stories.

Tracing Roots
USA, 2014, 31 minutes
Director: Ellen Frankenstein

Tracing Roots is a heartfelt glimpse into the world of Haida elder and master weaver Delores Churchill. The film is a portrait infused with her passion and curiosity. It is also a mystery. Tracing Roots follows Delores on her journey to uncover the origins of a spruce root hat found in a retreating glacier in the Northern Canada. Her search to understand the roots of the woven hat crosses cultures and borders, and involves artists, scholars and scientists. The documentary raises questions about understanding and interpreting ownership, knowledge and connection.

Unstill Lives
Australia, 2014, 10 minutes
Director: Daz Chandler

The Refugee Art Project was founded by artists and academics united by their concern for the plight of refugees stuck in Australian detention centers. The collective runs weekly art classes inside these security facilities; during this process, extraordinary talents have been uncovered and a true passion for art awakened. Alongside the trauma of incarceration and the endless anguish stemming from living in a state of permanent limbo, for many detainees, art is the only dependable source of comfort and available outlet for self-expression.
