Synopsis

What are true relationships? How separate are we from the stranger sitting just a chair away? This screening is all about connections and disconnections. Family comes with complication and criticism, warmth and empathy. Romance leads us on a heist for a stranger’s heart. Love is a rabbit that watches us grow across time. We see an expansive history of love and lust, from the microscopic to the abstract. Tension and closeness penetrate breath and silence. The collection of films explores the ties that bind us, and the edges of familiarity.

III
III
Synopsis

A Man and a Woman meet in a waiting room and immediately get closer to each other. They commence a game that gradually gets more and more ferocious. Their faces resemble masks while shapes slowly lose their integrity. Bodies are formed like clay, embracing each other until the limits of impossibility. „III” is a portrait of a woman in an exhausting relationship with a man, which allures and repulses at the same time. The film is the third part of the triptych “Impossible Figures and other stories”.

TeBelgeza
Synopsis

The TeBelgeza is a dance of freedom, the freedom of two interpenetrating elements, the feminine and the masculine, to transform and be born again perpetually. This is a semi-abstract film; it is improvised, stop-motion choreography in ink on tracing paper.

The Juggler
The Juggler
Synopsis

We live in the same house, but in different apartments, jobs, situations, beliefs, visions. Each in our own compartment, we fool ourselves that the world is one and that it exists. Sometimes it seems that an incomprehensible thread becomes visible and I am on a verge of understanding… This film is about the other side of life - the scary, unknown side we never fully grasp, but we know is there, somewhere near, so close.
