DEMONSTRATION
Mary Billyou, 2017, USA, 4 MIN
Self-defense techniques demonstrated and repeated to the creeping pace of Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are." Self-aware performers remix violence into complementarity, inspiring movement into the promise of a dance. A pink print directs informed movement, now as it was then.

NUTSIGASSAT
Tinne Zenner, 2018, Greenland/Canada/Denmark, 20 MIN
"Go outside. The lovely mountains two, Sermitsiaq and Kingittorsuaq, look at them.” The landscape acts as a scenery for collective nostalgia and city development in Nuuk, Greenland, as the film studies glitches in translation of language and culture in a post-colonial modernity.
