SHORT FILMS IN COMPETITION 

EXPERIMENTAL

CAMBIA TUTTO

Cambia Tutto is comprised of over 2500 images that, when brought together in sequence, take the viewer through the small Italian village of Cavaso del Tomba — a place that has changed from a cultural epicenter of its rural region to a sleepy town surrounded by industrial sites. These detailed images come together to celebrate this small overlooked village and show how immensely beautiful those unnoticed things and forgotten places are if you pay attention.

Director: Ana Mouyis

Country: USA, Italy

FLORA

"At Kindergarten I thought I could grow a penis from my vagina, just like the other boys." Although Chaerin Im was born as a woman, she never had affection or interest in objects or properties that corresponded to the category of 'feminine'. At the same time she never had the feeling that she should have been a man. Through twist and turns of uncanny sculptures resembling a penis, vagina, or both, Chaerin questions general gender connotations.

TIMES SQUARE

Investigating the contemporary use of images in our technological era, Times Square is an inventory of images about the act of photograph, the idea of time and its boundaries. An observation about collecting images as an anthology of our lives. As Susan Sontag’s On Photography says: “To collect photographs is to collect the world. (...) To photograph is to appropriate the thing that we are pointing at: It means putting oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge – and, therefore, like power.”

Director: Khalil Charif & Cristina Amiran

UROBOROS

OUROBOROS

A philosophical essay on two significant events in Mexico's history: the massacre of students in Tlatelolco in 1968 and the forced disappearance of students in Ayotzinapa in 2014. The official voices of each moment are similar, and the (sampled) voices of the presidential candidates in 2018 reflect the social condition of Mexico within the Eternal Return through everyday images, such as the subway, that connect both events.

Director: Antonio Arango

Country: Mexico
