Shorts: Joyful Lands, Joyful Bodies (15*) + Q&A

Chronic Youth Film Festival

An oil spill interacts with a hand nad a seascape in a warped image.

A collection of shorts exploring transgressive acts of reclamation, from land to gazes, followed by a live Q&A with Laisul Hoque and Maz Murray.

Through lucid and experimental narratives, filmmakers capture life in motion as they navigate the complex reflections between echoes of history, narrative control, and the human capacity for joy. Discover the surreal within the intricate negotiation of autonomy and conformity, revealing the delicate balance of modern existence. 

Followed by a live Q&A session with some of the filmmakers.


Length: 63 min + live Q&A
