The Years
Gli anni
Synopsis

A woman gives a voice to Annie Ernaux' "The years", a few collected fragments on the shores of a timeless Sardinia. Neither the words, nor the images, drawn from the family films, are expected to complete the narration of her story: places from her past. The mountains on the coast, a seascape, gardens, terraces, rooms of an apartment emerge like reflections of a fragmented and ever-changing memory, uncovered by a new light.

What's The Damage
What's The Damage
Synopsis

A proposition and provocation, answering back to the ongoing crises under white patriarchy, relaying and augmenting feelings and gestures of chronic unease, protest and dissent. Heather Phillipson’s summons and riposte storms in via menstrual blood, rising up against leadership circle-jerks, weeping vortexes, seared orangutans, animal-fat banknotes, and advancing supermoons, pizzas and drones.
