Kate Corby masterfully fuses dance and film once again in this short piece that loosely plays off of the Western genre, offering a gendered perspective on the rugged individualism, archetypes, and violence of the “American West”.
You're Adorable
A comedic short featuring an obsessive young woman who employs increasingly extreme methods to win over the man of her dreams.
The Messenger
A woman wanders through a variety of striking locations, seeking her inner identity while confronted with different versions of herself in this unique short film which combines a Maya Deren-influenced dreamlike narrative with notable architecture and an experimental use of calligraphy to create a unique cinematic world.
Way Upstate
A woman travels to her family’s cabin to find comfort in the familiar belongings held within. Way Upstate is an understated and beautifully realized exploration of grief and memory.
I've Been Afraid
As fun and playful as it is harrowing, "I've Been Afraid" finds experimental auteur, Cecelia Condit, reimaging the horror genre by using images from the digital age. Condit casts a mixture of familiar forms as objects stalked by mysterious and amorphous forces of terror.
In Due Time
Movies, takeout dinners, loneliness, and more movies -- In Due Time is the sometimes surreal, all too relatable story of one young woman’s Madison-based experience in the pandemic, apartment sitting, isolated from friends and family.
An abstract ghost story, based on the life and work of 19th century writer, Lafcadio Hearn, Descended is notable both for the uniquely committed lead performance by co-director Jean Laurenz as well as the intricate, trumpet-inflected score written by Maria Finkelmeier and performed in part by Laurenz, who is also a descendent of Hearns.

Seven shorts from the Wisconsin's Own section of our Festival touch on themes we can all relate to after this past year: loneliness, isolation, the need for human contact and the connections we have to those we long for, miss, or have been affected by, for better or worse. The characters in these films also use their alone time to make the sometimes tricky journey to connect with their inner selves.

Marissa Bode stars in and directs this comedic short featuring an obsessive young woman who employs increasingly extreme methods to win over the man of her dreams. (BS)
