Credits – Dimitris Chimonas

Overbearingly artificial, brashly executed, and theatrically spun, each film from the trilogy ‘Credits’ breaks down the ideas and characters it portrays with searing self- awareness. Using theatrical techniques and terminology, it attempts to undermine normative notions of authenticity, truth, and the primacy of emotions and subjective experience.

Physical Culture – Anna Bogomolova

An experimental choreographed short film that frames rave as a vital human practice in the information age — it invites us to explore conscious physical movement, who we are when we dance and why we do it, placing some universal existential questions into refreshingly queer, playful packaging. It’s rave, it’s queer, it’s for everybody.
