  • The Shape of Now

    By on

    Do you remember the war? Ask seven different people and you will hear seven different stories. Rated “one of the standout works” (Jenna Sauers, Cultured Magazine) of Bogotá’s ARTBO art fair, The Shape of Now is a creative documentary by former Vancouverite Manuel Correa, who made his directorial debut with #ARTOFFLINE in 2016. His new film considers the seemingly impossible challenge of constructing, in the interests of peace and reconciliation, a history of Colombia’s bloody, decades-long civil conflict.

  • Intimate Strangers

    By on

    The films of this screening offer varied views on the concept of the foreigner, by emphasizing the personal experience of the filmmakers: the feeling of strangeness experienced towards the place of origin, the discovery of the other and the bond of sympathy within the journey, the experience of exile, and finally the history of the split of a country. Vehicles of this otherness, the forms break, shatter in contact with the other, calling into question their borders.

  • Reminiscences of Jonas Mekas

    By on

    Jonas Mekas’s films celebrate life. They rise up against the world’s overwhelming commercialism, attempting instead to revive the pleasures of friendship, a first snowfall or the return of Spring. Mekas’s genius stems from his generously including the viewer in his vision of the world, allowing us to (re)discover, in a simple image, the incredible force and necessity of poetry.” – Yann Beauvais

  • Sisters of the Extreme

    By on

    Avant-garde filmmakers have long explored the potential of cinema to afford a visionary experience, exploring the affinities of film with trance, ritual, dream and memory, testing the play of light on the depths of the subconscious. Curators Kathryn Siegel and Sophia Satchell-Baeza’s programme Sisters of the Extreme brings together a series of films by women from the 1960s to the present day, concentrating on work that shares an occult sensibility and a concern with film’s potential to render heightened mental states, from the meditative to the ecstatic.
