Sun Dog

DIR: Dorian Jespers . 20 min . Belgium, Russia . 2020

Fedor is a young locksmith in Murmansk, a frozen city in the obscurity of the Russian Arctic. Client after client, he roams through the alleys of concrete animated by a fantasy that isolates him from the city and its population. His dreams corrode his relation to reality and open the door to a phantasmagoric universe; a second sun is rising above the Russian Arctic.

Poise

DIR: Luís Soares . 7 min . Portugal . 2020

Lying on the bed of a small room, a man is in a stalemate, unable to decide. Time is suspended within and outside of him, in the minimalist room and in the geometric city. In between this another man observes, side by side with some red dried flowers. Inaction. Pushed by disgust and despair, a very brief glimpse of an exit seems to unroll: between cycles of analysis and broken sequences.

Here, Here

DIR: Joanne Cesario . 19 min . Philippines . 2020

Here, Here reimagines a once rugged and undisturbed town years after mining operations began. Koi, 22, returns home for the first time since leaving for college, and does so with an infected ear. He accompanies his mother Tonet in waiting for his father, both of them clueless as to whether his father could make it home alive after an accident in the extraction tunnel. As Koi reconnects with his hometown in slow decay, he fears the impending possibility of losing both his father and his hearing. Part fiction, part experiment, and purposefully blurring the distinction, Here, Here serves as a loose visual study on landscapes and terrains, both natural and beyond.
