Coming Out
Vijay Patel, UK, 2016, 1:23 min.

This experimental short film explores homophobia within the British Indian community from a personal and autobiographical perspective. The artist merges an audio recording of when he “came out” to his parents with a self-recorded sexually explicit video clip. The artist challenges audiences with the rawness of the film footage, but also surprises them with his honest, candid, personal and humorous approach.

Anne Helene, Australia, 2013, 14:23 min.

This lo-fi sci-fi short film is an experimental hybrid of documentary, fiction and performance art. The story plays out in an affective cinematic mode, largely based on a lexicon of imagery and gesture. It features two transgender men, playing a very queer version of their own characters as they perform aspects of themselves onscreen. Throughout the film they are haunted by a chimera, a post-human personification of the desires, fears and possibilities that form who we might be in the future.

Still[ness] Black
kyisha williams, Canada, 2015, 5:14 min.

Through the vehicle of meditation this piece sheds light on anti-Black racism, ableism, misogyny and homophobia through witnessing the experience of body pain. It speaks to the instance of having to sit through oppressive experiences and systems while often not being able to do anything except be aware of what is happening. The piece illustrates this painful process while also discussing resilience embodied through the practice of meditation. It presents it as a tool for healing despite forces beyond ourselves/ our control and comforts us with the reality of constant change.

SEWenir is a very short experimental video about traces left by departures with no return, made out of two single words sewn by hand on the fingers tips.

Ruins exposes the idea of obstruction by means of a visible or invisible limit, materialized through the remains of what once was a space delimited by walls.
