Blinded By Centuries (ให้แสงอาบกายให้กาลวายสิ้น) (Country: Thailand; Year: 2023; Director: Parinda Mai)
Navigating the evolution of consciousness in a speculative landscape. An auto-fictional retelling of Phra Ros Meri (Twelve Sisters), the Buddhist folktale rooted in Southeast Asia.
Mast-del (Country: UK, Iran; Year: 2023; Director: Maryam Tafakory)
Two women lie together in bed. As the wind bashes against the window, one recalls a past date to the cinema. A love song that would never pass the censors, about forbidden desires, both inside and outside post-revolution Iranian cinema.
The Medallion (Country: UK; Year: 2023; Director: Ruth Hunduma)
A single piece of jewellery can hold the story of generations. Ruth was barely a teenager when her mother passed down a medallion. Together, they travel to Ethiopia to explore her mother’s story as a survivor of the Red Terror genocide.
Suddenly TV (Country: Sudan, Qatar; Year: 2022; Director: Roopa Gogineni)
At a besieged protest in Khartoum, a group of young Sudanese create an imaginary television station to meet fellow revolutionaries. What begins as play becomes an urgent conjuring of a new Sudan.
Terra Mater (Country: Rwanda; Year: 2023; Director: Kantarama Gahigiri)
For our land and bones. At the end of the world. Technology and waste, in our lands, our systems, our bones. Wandering our spaces, she cannot help but wonder, where is the space for healing?
