As Summer Ends
(experimental)

Teachers at Clayton Elementary School prepare for the first day of school.

This film is an examination of the expected structures of a documentary. The goal of the film is to participate effectively within the constraints of a documentary, while also providing as little information as possible. The film looks like a documentary, however, it is anything but. The pacing and repetition create a hypnotic feeling while the lack of clear information causes the viewer to analyze the actions for themselves.

Director - Truman Matheny

NOEN

(international short film)

Noen

Through a series of enigmatic and dreamlike scenes we meet a boy, a man and a woman, each in their own way engaged in a journey through inner and outer landscapes. The fourth “character” is a mysterious glass ball, wandering around from hand to hand. Some times distant and unreachable, some times close and tangible. Like waves, the characters drift towards and away from each other.
Noen is a cinematic poem about enchantment and loss, hope and longing. Inspired by the lyrics of Nick Cave, but not meant to be an illustration or interpretation of these.
The film is almost entirely without spoken words, and the story is driven by images, music and movement. The adult main characters are played by professional dancers, and there are two dance sequences.

Director - Bernhard Østebø
