Brief Encounters

Our next “Brief Encounter” comes from Portugal and transports us to a post-apocalyptic future as exuberant as it is melancholy. At under 30 minutes, this gorgeous, lilac-hued, poetic meditation on belonging sets out to counteract historical and political injustice with the untamed power of beauty.

Brief Encounters

We’re delighted to launch Brief Encounters, a spotlight for outstanding new shorts, with two-time Rotterdam Tiger Award winner Beatrice Gibson. I Hope I’m Loud is a mesmeric and intimate whirlwind of poetry exploding as an antidote to violence, a multi-layered message of love in turbulent times.
