"Short films are not inferior, just different. I think the short gives a freedom to film-makers. What's appealing is that you don't have as much responsibility for storytelling and plot. They can be more like a portrait, or a poem." - Jane Campion (director of 'The Piano', 'In the cut' and lots of short films)

Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace (Italy) by Antonella Mignone, Cristiano Panepuccia

"Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace" takes inspiration from the concept of emotional memory, depicting the encounter of two lovers in a liminal dimension, a place where movements preserve the memory of the past and create a synthesis of the entire action. The work has been created with a mix of body projection, light painting, real time randomization and CGI animation techniques. "Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace" is one of the chapters that constitute DROP, a project divided into several autonomous works focusing on the dialectical relationship between the concept of Infinity and Control as a fundamental issue of human nature.

Purpleland (United States) by Carly Lieberman

Two interviews weave together in this animated documentary short. One features Frank, a 34 year old white male from the historic coal mining town of Wilkes- Barre, PA, who voted red this past election term. The other is the voice of Anjelica, a 23 year old first generation immigrant from the Dominican Republic, who voted blue. He talks about the economic struggles of his community as she recounts her parents sacrifices so she could live a life of opportunity. Both interviews leave blanks that beg for answers. Frank emphasizes the importance of a crackdown on illegal immigration as Anjelica emphasizes the importance of education. Both Frank and Anjelica’s parents endured laborious jobs to carve for themselves their idea of the American dream. But as Anjelica discusses how far her family has come there is the sense that Frank is motionless. What surfaces is that the idea of the American dream, which seems like the promise of a constant incline in prosperity if you work hard enough, spurs feelings of neglect in Frank and hope in Anjelica’s family.

Team of Brothers (United States) by Kathryn Dietz

TEAM OF BROTHERS tells the story of Jenna, a young woman who spent her childhood being bullied and isolated, first for her life-threatening peanut allergy that required a separate table at school, Tourette’s syndrome and OCD. She had no friends but her parents, who struggled to help her even as they dealt with their own disabilities. They took her for neurological testing at age fourteen, and she was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. The diagnosis qualified her to receive appropriate educational services, but did little to help her find friends, especially since her school was nearly 20 miles from home. And girls like Jenna often fall through the cracks. As she noted after one especially easy life skill session, “It’s hard to practice social skills with people who have poor social skills.” Where does a person like Jenna find the friendships and social connections everyone craves? One day her mother got a call from Coach Ray of the East Coast Jumbos, a team he started to accommodate his own autistic son. His players were a lot like her and had a variety of disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, and deafness. Jenna tried out and made the team – their only female player (although not by design). Her hockey skills made her a popular teammate, and she gradually gained confidence and began to thrive. At the end of the film she tells us: “When you find something you love, you fit in. And being different can be hard, but it’s definitely okay.”
