Memory Sightings: Cinema of Seeing Bodies

Co-presented with the 19th Film Arts Festival of Independent Cinema

This intriguing shorts program gives life to stories once unheard, characters on the brink, and dreams with no end. Works include Michael Wilson’s Flora’s Film, a true story of love and revenge inspired by the life of Eadweard Muybridge; Kim Wood’s On My Knees, based on the turn-of-the-century diaries of servant and fetishist Hannah Culwick; Christopher Marino’s Finding Fedrick, detailing the search for a missing Boy Scout; Neferiti Kelley Farias’ Another, a collaged tribute to the missing women of Juarez; Jay Rosenblatt’s Friend Good, a Frankenstein-inspired exploration of the journey from good to evil and back again; Ken Paul Rosenthal’s hand-processed I My Bike; Waratap Pasayadaj’s poetic Recall; Aaron Hawks’ racy Salt; and the world premiere of Dominic Angerame’s mesmerizing Consume.
