  • 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.
