Nyanga
During the colonial era, Nyanga was kidnapped off the coast of Africa, brought to Mexico and enslaved. Though forced to work on the master's plantation, he never stopped dreaming of freedom.
Divergence Convergence
A year ago, after the war in Ukraine broke out, people of different cultures and backgrounds were all in shock, as some of our basic human values and understanding of the world were being stress-tested.
The First Gardener
A lonely girl runs away from her unloving home and begins her search for food and shelter in an unwelcoming and dystopian world. During her search she faces nothing but rejection and indifference from its self-centered inhabitants which live isolated from each other. In her fearful interactions with the world she realizes that she is part of the problem and that in order to connect she has to overcome her own fears to be able to open up her heart and give the world that which she herself seeks.
The Grand Book
A young woman lives on the streets in a city that is reminiscent of the 1920s in terms of style and technological advancement This oppressive city has an omnipresent system of cameras and projection screens. Everything that stands out on the street is captured by the cameras and shown publicly, including when the protagonist sleepwalks during her nightmares. This adds to her overall unease until she finds a new perspective on her dreams. Maybe dreaming could be a way for her to find some privacy and let her creativity run wild - a place to be herself.
What Humans Do
A macro view of human-actions, as told from within a singular body. The film is a catalog of homo sapien instincts; its sequences interlace extractive qualities of our species with embodied sensory experience, in favor of a mindful awareness of what humans do to their habitats and planet Earth at-large.
