John Woodman / UK / 2019 / 8 mins
Just as a tree grows from its roots in the earth towards the sky, an image seems to ‘grow’ very gradually from the bottom centre of the frame upwards, as the mist clears and the image reveals itself, presenting a reflexive and phenomenological encounter for the viewer.
Producer: John Woodman


Vasilios Papaioannu / USA / 2018 / 8 mins / Subtitled / Colour and Black & White
The conversation—between sound and image, seasons come and gone, natural and altered landscapes and an unseen man and woman—begins as a duet between a video diary and a field recording, and ends as an archive of the possibilities hibernating in each moment.
Producer: Vasilios Papaioannu

Dürrenwaid 8

Ines Christine Geißer, Kirsten Carina Geißer / Germany / 2018 / 7 mins

Producer: Ines Christine Geißer
