Dilating for Maximum Results

After an award-winning debut in How Not to Date While Trans, Nyala Moon writes, directs, and acts in another comic take on instructional online videos. Toying with internet iconography and zippy editing, the artist grapples with the sticky specifics of a post-surgery body in this ticklish short.

DILATING FOR MAXIMUM RESULTS

United States 2023
Before the Volcanoes Sing

Sounding out the pre-Columbian past with ocarinas, flutes, and echoing structures, artist Clarissa Tossin collaborates with a chorus of talents in this spirited film. As rich in imagination as it is respectful of tradition, Before the Volcanoes Sing is a mosaic of cross-generational creativity.

United States 2022
Spirit Emulsion

In this shimmering homage to a daughter’s heritage, the stuff of culture and nature point to an immaterial world of ineffable belonging. Formed of Super-8 images developed with plants and botanicals, Spirit Emulsion encapsulates unbreakable bonds of family and folklore in eight magical minutes.

SPIRIT EMULSION

Canada 2021
A Plot / A Scandal

Throwing demands of conventional storytelling to the wind, this corporeally energetic work from Ligia Lewis is invigoratingly animated by the artist’s background in performance and dance. Bells toll, clocks chime, but linear time is out of joint in this stirring evocation of Caribbean resistance.

A PLOT / A SCANDAL

Germany 2023
Pahá Kiŋ Lená Wakháŋ (These Hills Are Sacred)

Abstract animations are punctuated by glimpses of video in this shapeshifting short from Oglála Lakȟóta artist Kite. Structured according to her grandfather’s teachings, Pahá kiŋ lená wakháŋ uses its gentle pace and mesmerizing imagery to probe the complex relationship between truth and belief.

PAHÁ KIŊ LENÁ WAKHÁŊ (THESE HILLS ARE SACRED)

United States 2017
Tray Tray Ko

Carried toward a sacred site with quiet momentousness, glistening fabric sparkles with the mesmeric color of ultramarine in this six-minute short. Converging on the shared ground of ritual, performance and pilgrimage entwine in an aquatic film of deceptive simplicity and unmistakable beauty.

TRAY TRAY KO

Mexico 2022
The Bicyclist Who Fell into a Time Cone

Taking a parallax view on late 20th-century history, this short whirs with sci-fi theories of modernity. Maximizing the multimedia potential of the digital screen, Raqs Media Collective layer animated, illustrated, and pixellated images to make a time-traveling video worthy of Chris Marker.

I Don't Know

Before the punk epic The Decline of Western Civilization and the slacker classic Wayne’s World, Penelope Spheeris turned her camera on a couple in the midst of sexual liberation. Oozing Californian cool, this hangout flick embraces however its subjects choose to enjoy their bodies and identities.
