This is not a movie. This is a cry. How we are, why we act like this. Is there any hope left?

Iridescence

Iridescence

 

THAILANDE PREMIERE

 


Eileen Byrne

Luxembourg
2017 | 0:05:30


After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, élodie turned her suffering and fears into a creative fight against the disease and the debilitating effects of the treatments used. Her latest work, Iridescence, is the personal story of her fight with cancer and the way she found to deal with the disease in a creative and hopeful manner. It's also a way of giving back and handing on the positive vibes that she's received from friends, family and strangers during the course of her disease. ‘There are many of us (patients, friends or family) fighting cancer with creativity. Composing, drawing, painting, writing, body art-ing etc., to prevent it from stealing our souls. So let’s share ideas and creations in order to inspire people around us, who in turn will inspire others.

No Rest for the Restless

No Rest for the Restless

 

THAILANDE PREMIERE

 


Kent Tate

Canada
2017 | 0:07:00


No Rest for the Restless” is a story drawn from my impressions of our hallucinatory world. A subconscious response to the recognition that we are in the midst of the "Anthropocene period" and the "Holocene extinction." An tumultuous age in which this planet is being transformed into something we may, or may not yet imagine.

Jamais-Vu

Jamais-Vu

 

THAILANDE PREMIERE

 


Werner Biedermann

Germany
2016 | 0:04:00


The found-footage film „Jamais-vu“ shows archetypical situations which, in this new montage, are perceived as different and strange. This panorama presents a gamut of emotional sensory impressions focussing on cinema as the means of expressing the condition of a culture. All about heart, skin and brains, eyes and genitalia, consciousness and sub-consciousness, in short, all about cinemastory – cinema stories: or, all about life, from birth to death.

The Provisional Death of Bees

The Provisional Death of Bees

 

ASIA PREMIERE

 


Maryam Firuzi

Iran
2016 | 0:26:46


A poetic journey into the mind of a woman artist in Iran who is creatively blocked and can not finish her next film. The borders of reality and her dreams has faded away as she tries to cling to something in her isolation. Her gender seems the main obstacle she is facing. The only solution she finds is to let go her past, but in the most poetic way as her hair becomes the metaphor of her freedom

The Other

The Other

 

THAILAND PREMIERE

 


Will Sankhla

India
2016 | 0:11:00


The Other is an experimental short, looking at the loss of a single woman as a metaphor for the ways in which women in general are erased or lost from society. The first half of the film is narrated from the woman’s point of view, after she has already died; the second half is from a man’s who is still alive and mourning her. I wanted to show in as deeply personal and poetic a way as I could how both men and women - all of us - suffer when the female half of humanity suffers.

May 7 - 9, 2016

An international jury overview the sections of short films coming from all over the world. The festival prefers film treating important subjects in an original way, films which don't avoid ambiguity and complexity, films, which are sometimes stay enigmatic, so that refection and mind are going on moving, exceptional films, which covers all kind of artistically expressions, films open for esthetical innovation, shortly films reflecting the perturbing strangeness of the modern world in a complex way.
