ALL STILL ORBIT (Dane Komljen & James Lattimer, Croatia/Serbia/Germany/Brazil, 2015, 22 min.)
A philosophical-historical investigation of Brasília. Tracing its origins from Saint Don Boscos (possibly apocryphal) dream in 1883, the filmmakers use a lyrical voiceover and hyper-tinted digital images of the city and its environs to question the idealism of the citys international style.
IEC LONG (João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata, Portugal, 2014, 31 min.)
Interweaving archival footage, photographs, figurine-based reconstructions, oral testimony, slices of contemporary life, and the nearly omnipresent sound of fireworks exploding in the distance, Rodrigues and Guerra da Mata have crafted another multivalent and eclectic exploration of memory, place, and the politics underlying both.
POET ON A BUSINESS TRIP (Ju Anqi, China, 2015, 103 min.)
A bawdy, absurdist journey across Chinas remote Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region that yields 16 funny and astute poems. Grand Prize winner of the 2015 Jeonju International Film Festival.
