FIC 13 opens with Blood Lust of the Wolf, a live cinema performance by Simon Tarr, remixing the classic film Nanook of the North (dir. Robert Flaherty, 1922) into a fugue state about race, ethnicity, and exploitation. The show dissects the structure of the original films to unearth the core of what makes Nanook disturbing yet compelling nearly a century later, the film's approach to ethnography. Seven short films follow, including recent experimental, documentary, and animated works. Features a dual 16mm projection and more.

Description
Humanity and animality are enigmatically confronted and entwined. Combining rich high-contrast 16mm images with crisp digital color scenes, BLUA composes an uncanny entry into the relationship between human and animal existence. Unfolding like a tapestry, its montage complicates the relationship between observation and fiction. Reaching for equal beauty and strangeness, BLUA is an assertion of the uncanny, a cine-poetic philosophical speculation.
