MOMENTS NOT BEHIND US, short film + Q&A
Moments Not Behind Us is a screening event, presenting a selection of three short films. Rewinding the moments of the highest emotions and points of no return through the lens of memory, each film tells stories about love, homesickness and grief. Are those moments yet behind us?
On the Wane (6’) by Hee-Seung Choi
On the Wane unfolds as the protagonist recounts memories and past conversations with her late father while contemplating the idea of a beginning and an end; and how they seem to be intertwined.
Listen to the Grass Grow (25’) by Kristina Daurova
Listen to the Grass Grow is a short abstract personal memory; sometimes too emotional, sometimes too illogical. But that’s the way our thoughts are floating in the space of our consciousness. This is the story of Maria.
Hello My First Love, Over and Out (29’) by Daniel Donato
Harry travels to Lisbon in search of his first lover, but Agnes, his feminine double, reappears. A love letter guides Harry/Agnes along in this phantasmagorical investigation.
The screening will be followed by the Q&A moderated by Irina Leifer.
