Shorts: Collapse in Time and Place + Q&A

Chronic Youth Film Festival

Still from Wintermelon

A collage of shorts from emerging filmmakers bringing together films exploring the ever-changing relationship between place and aspects of identity.

Through a range of personal and collective journeys, filmmakers seek to navigate the complexities of subjective memories, untold histories and how these shape their communities. Experimenting with forms including archival footage, home movies and animation, the films act as a collapse in temporalities, visually connecting the past with present day issues on an individual and societal scale.

Live Post-screening Q&A discussion with filmmakers and directors: Christina Poon (Wintermelon), Sophie Huckfield (Factories Leaving the Worker), Miro Alleyne-McCarthy (Slay The Beast from A State of Peace), Ikram Ahmed (Barry the Beekeeper), Layla Madanat and Eleanor Nawal (dirs. Mosaic)
