** FILMS IN THIS PROGRAM: **
(Rosie Trump, US, 2021, 6 min)
Home Movies consists of vintage found footage of people dancing. Moments captured long ago of living room dance parties, birthdays, and impromptu twirls down the street and in the kitchen.
They Dance with Their Heads
(Thomas Corriveau, Canada, 2021, 8 min, in English & French with English subtitles)
The severed head of a choreographer is held captive by an eagle on a desert island. With a dazzling mastery of drawing and painting, this animated short unexpectedly takes us into the sensitive world of an artist madly in love with dance.
Imágenes de una realidad - Images of a reality
(Ana Baer & Cecilia Appleton, Mexico, 2020, 4 min)
An intimate view at an intergenerational family living in one of the largest cities in the world, filmed on location in Mexico City.
(Paul Shepherd, Hong Kong, 2022, 3 min)
In a sudden global cataclysmic event me, you,and everyone we know are unified in our isolation we work isolated, we study isolated and we struggle isolated. The real is just out of [human] touch.
(Stephan Dorn, Germany, 2022, 1 min)
Ten hard cuts. Ten snapshots of movement. Out of focus, unfinished, silly. The pictures dance with themselves, according to a strict beat. And when they are done, they start all over.
FACE TO FACE
(Florent Mahoukou, Congo, 2021, 19 min, in French)
At a difficult turning point in his personal and professional life, choreographer Florent Mahoukou returns to the town of Pointe Noire where, for him, everything began with dance.
