The Perpetual Motion of My Love For You
Karen Yasinsky, 9m, USA
A collage film slipping between narrative starts of images and sounds: May Sarton's snapshots, a resplendent Liz Taylor, internal and external awkwardnesses, a short respite of peace and a dogged, deeply sad positivism. The varied fragments introduce domesticity, boredom, female and maternal forces and war, with the purpose of acknowledging the mysteries. They are many. voice: Jim Fletcher

To You Dear Friend
Jimmy Joe Roche, 9m, USA
I made this film during an intense bout of insomnia. This film is an attempt to communicate my inner life during that most difficult time. Much of the film is shot through homemade lenses. I choose to keep the soundtrack silent to accentuate the rhythmic structure of the images and communicate the trance like space between waking and sleeping.
