Event description

Description

Short film documentaries create poignancy through their concise emotional story-telling, a technique that is exemplified by the arduous and rewarding documentary process. These films represent the harmonious collision between emotion and information that make short documentaries not only memorable, but also exhilarating.

Program:

"FJORD" by Skule Eriksen | 24 min | NORWAY

Fjord is a personal interpretation of the landscape in Naeroyfjord in Western Norway, included in UNESCO's world heritage list in 2005. The film is poetic and rhythmic, following the shifting light and the turn of the seasons in this unique and dramatic landscape. The film has no dialogue or commentary.

"Carbon for Water" by Evan Abramson | 22 min | KENYA

In Kenya's Western Province, most drinking water is contaminated. The wood many Kenyans use to boil this water to make it safe is increasingly valuable. Women and girls, who bear the responsibility for finding water and fuel, often miss school or work while seeking both fuel and water.

"El Último Hielero" by Sandy Patch | 14:10 min | ECUADOR

For the last 53 years, Baltazar Ushca has harvested glacial ice from the tallest mountain in Ecuador. His brothers, Gregorio and Juan, have long since retired from the mountain. This is a tale of cultural change in a small indigenous community and how three brothers have adapted to it.

"Ephemeral City" by Philip Davis | 18 min | USA

The streets of New York City come alive in this beautiful, fascinating feat of sounds and visuals. Its effect mirrors the harmoniously chaotic experience of walking through the streets of the city, often serendipitously coherent, and sometimes a simple experience in sensory abstraction.

"Everything is Incredible" by Tyler Bastian | 10:05 min | HONDURAS

A disabled man named Agustin in Honduras has been building a helicopter for the past 53 years, causing controversy amongst his family and community.

"Code Therapy" by Divya Pathak | 15 min | USA/UK
In a world where mental health services are only available to a fraction of people who need them, digital technology may offer new hope.

Duration: 103.65
