Tender Feet. Fern Silva, USA, 2013, 10m.
Tender Feet was shot on the road in the southwest leading up to the not quite so cataclysmic and transformative events anticipated to take place around Dec. 21st 2012. As digits flipped on the odometer, so did the days in the Mayan calendar shedding light and darkness on charred forests, arid landscapes, falling stars, destructive vortexes, fortune telling traffic signs, and ticking time bombs... —FS
"Do you know what the secret to life is... this... one thing, just one thing..."—Curly Washburn

45 7 Broadway. Tomonari Nishikawa, USA/Japan, 2013, 6m.
This is about Times Square, the noises and movements at
this most well-known intersection. The film was shot on black and
white films through color filters, red, green, and blue, then shots
were optically printed onto color films through these filters. The
layered images of shots by handheld camera would agitate the scenes,
and the advertisements on the digital billboards try to pull ahead of
others.—T.N.

Sea Series 12, 13, 14. John Price, Canada, 2013, 7:30.

Despedida (Farewell). Alexandra Cuesta, USA, 2013, 9:36.
Shot in Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles, this transitory neighborhood resonates with the poetry of local resident Mapkaulu Roger Nduku. Verses about endings, looking and passing through open up the space projected. A string of tableaus gather a portrait of place and compose a goodbye letter to an ephemeral home.—A.C.

Bat El Drinking Water and Other Signs. Jonathan Schwartz, USA/Israel, 2013, 9:59.
(Maybe) of finding neutral signs in a non-neutral place while tension sits, increases, is shared, builds, or possibly lessens - or maybe is placed elsewhere for a while. Some birds move easily across, from above. You can hear them all over and the breeze that follows feels important. It comes when it wants, breaks up a heat, pauses something, and interrupts without being seen.—J.S.

Utskor: Either/Or. Laida Lertxundi, Norway/Spain/USA, 2013, 7:30.
In the town of Utskor in the region of Bø, northern Norway, we find memories of a political past intertwining with domestic, familial moments during the midnight sun. (LL)

Gowanus Canal. Sarah J. Christman, USA, 2013, 7m.
Just below the surface of one of the most contaminated urban waterways in the United States, microorganisms thrive amidst the 
toxic waste.

High Water. Pawel Wojtasik, USA, 2013, 9:23.
High Water was filmed in post-Katrina New Orleans and the surrounding Louisiana wetlands, one of the fastest disappearing coastal areas on the planet. The work engages viewers in a contemplation of a landscape damaged by human intervention that nevertheless struggles to retain its vitality. High Water is accompanied by Stephen Vitiello’s moody soundtrack.

A Idade de Pedra/The Age of Stone. Ana Vaz, Brazil, 2013, 28:57.
A voyage into the far west of Brazil leads us to a monumental structure - petrified at the centre of the savannah. Inspired by the epic construction of the city of Brasília, the film uses this history to imagine it otherwise. Through the geological traces that lead us to this monument, the film unearths a history of exploration, prophecy and myth.
