These short works lean into those expressions of love, vulnerability and solidarity that galvanise and nourish us in the face of isolation.


Whether it’s a politically persecuted gay man in Tunisia forging community, a tender yet unsentimental depiction of a mother’s love, or a flower caught in a thunderstorm, these films act as a tonic for the trials and tribulations of an eventful year.


Featuring the concluding three chapters of Meriem Bennani and Orian Barki's 2 Lizards, and Sylvia Schedelbauer's lushly stereoscopic, personal expression of the nowness and newness of love.


Programmed by Tom Grimshaw and the international selection committee. 84'
