This program showcases some of today's most exciting experimental film and video artists. Traveling across the globe, into the mystery of interior spaces, and exploring the magic of the medium itself, these works offer deeply personal perspectives on our existence and our planet.

Cloudless Blue Egress of Summer-Part 1:

An exploration of Fort Marion, the US fort where Native American prisoners of war were placed.

Director: Sky Hopinka | Runtime: 13 min | Country: USA | 2019 | English

Absent Wound:

The rituals of Persian warrior training are seen in combination with the recitations of a young girl coming to terms with her impending womanhood.

Director: Maryam Tafakory | Runtime: 10 min | Country: Iran | 2018 | Farsi, English

Steps to Balance 1-5:

Two characters attempt to balance through five steps. They become the tension, support, conflict and progress that happens within identity and relationships.

Director: Molly Garrett | Runtime: 3 min | Country: USA | 2017 | English

For All Audiences:

A trailer of an experiment searches for meaning in a moldy montage. The detritus of the movie industry swims in organic material.

Director: Josh Weissbach | Runtime: 3 min | Country: USA | 2018 | no dialogue


In the summer of 1985, 5 days before Molly was born, she was diagnosed with anencephaly.

Director: Sam Schild | Runtime: 14 min | Country: USA | 2018 | English


Hands toggle articulated control knobs, plastic-wrapped robotic appendages dart across the frame, pincer-equipped arms dance atop an alien surface on a control screen. The ultra-short documentary Surgery gradually reveals these images to be fragmentary views of the uncannily life-like DaVinci surgical apparatus.

Director: Edward Kihn | Runtime: 1 min | Country: USA | 2017 | English

Migraine MyGroan MyGain:

A picture that will give you a headache and, perhaps, a smile. The movie is about my coming to terms with and understanding the migraine headaches I get.

Director: John Akre | Runtime: 5 min | Country: USA | 2018 | English


Born out of an “objective hazard” (a 16mm roll where two different subjects were imprinted by mistake), jeny303 is a composite work intertwining two portraits.

Director: Laura Huertas Millán | Runtime: 6 min | Countries: Colombia, France | 2018 | Spanish

Tricky Flick:

A President of the United States: black-and-white spotted.

Director: Hannah Frank | Runtime: 1 min | Country: USA | 2019 | English


Fusing earth with sky, day with night, heartbeat with mountain, and mineral with iridescent cloud, ALTIPLANO reveals a vibrating landscape.

Director: Malena Szlam | Runtime: 15 min | Countries: Chile, Argentina, Canada | 2018 | no dialogue
