I Want to See / Quiero Ver
Warren Auditorium, Mother Rosalie Hill Hall
Adele Horne, Director / 6 min 
On the 13th of each month, hundreds of people gather at a site in the Mojave Desert to see visions of the Virgin Mary appear in the sun. They point Polaroid, cell phone, and video cameras at the sun, and compare interpretations of the resulting images. This film documents the creative energy of this populist spiritual event. Vision Award, Ann Arbor Film Festival.

5:30
Dress Rehearsal for Utopia / Ensayo Final Para Utopía
Warren Auditorium, Mother Rosalie Hill Hall 
Andrés Duque, Director / 75 min
 
Experimental documentary maker Andrés Duque visits Mozambique looking for old footage that had been made there. But strange premonitions make him sad. When it becomes apparent that his old father is seriously ill, he returns to his homeland of Venezuela straight away.The film he had been working on grows into a personal collage in which he gives his feelings a place alongside the politically tinted images he found in Mozambique - or filmed himself. In this way, Dress Rehearsal for Utopia turns into a diary cum experimental travelogue cum political statement. After an intimate start and a cultural trip to Mozambique, Duque returns home, where he has to face the fact that he can’t change anything about the finiteness of life. The musical soundtrack is sometimes interrupted for scenes by a gentle rustling noise that links the different images, their origins and significance together.
