Olvidándonos y recordándonos a nosotras mismas

Directed by: Itxaso Díaz. 25 min. 30 sec. 2017. Euskadi – Wales.

This project aims to explore questions about the body, ageing, constraints and freedom. What does it mean to have a body that is disappearing? What is being visible and invisible with an older body? How do sensuality itself, sexuality, power and fragility operate as shown through the gestures of older bodies? Older bodies are political bodies… Reducing speed in order to be seen is a political act… Against the speed of the world.




Directed by: Jiří Kylián. 6 min. 2014. Netherlands

It is a meeting of a middle aged woman with a young man in this nostalgic trip dashing through time and space and through memories, which perhaps never even happened. It is a symbol of irrevocable loss of young love on one side and on the other – the only security accompanying us all our life: the terminal station (the final destination).


Le reveil

Strophe is and internal poetic monologue about routine, the automatism of our destiny and the languid acceptance of our comfortable structure. Presented in verse, as every day, the repetition of an apparently comfortable loop inundated with questions.

Inspired by the Greek playwrights Euripides and Sophocles, the British philosopher Alan Watts and the American writer Henry Miller.

Night Dancing

Directed by: Barney Cokeliss. United Kingdom. 2016

Every night, Bob is transfixed by the vision of a woman dancing outside his window; every morning, he struggles to make sense of it. The line between a leap (of faith) and a pas de deux grows increasingly fine as the dance beckons.


I See You See I See You

Directed by: Chen Jiexiao. 4 min. 49 sec. 2017. Singapur

In a world of visually discernible information, one does as one sees, but consequently loses the ability to make tactile sense of reality.

What if reality went whimsical on us – could we still waddle together, even without really seeing?



Basta de Mendigar

Directed by: Ángela Chica y Goize Blanco. 3 min. 30 sec. 2018. Spain

All that glitters is not gold.

7:35 de la mañana

Directed by: Nacho Vigalondo. 8 min. 2003. Spain

One morning a woman notices something odd in the bar where she has breakfast every day: all the other customers and waiters are silent. They’re all looking at the floor. No-one is eating their breakfast. Suddenly, we hear a song.



The evil

Direcyed by: Carlon Hardt.  2min10sec. 2016. Brasil

“So who never thought about the Evil / saw herself in criminal nature” – the video portrays, through an analog cutout and collage stopmotion, the surreal in the loss of innocence and the seduction by the forbidden.



Directed by: Or Schraiber. 10 min. 2017. Israel

SHIVTA is a short dance film telling a cinematic and kinetic exploration of two lost desert wanderers.

In the form of Fata-Morgana, a doubtful portal appears in the distance.

Curiosity takes over and the two, as the narrative rolls forward, find themselves bewitched and possessed by a celestial fortune teller.
