GRANDMA GALYA AND GRANDPA ARKADIY
ANNA KIPERVASER | 2023 | 04:24 | UKRAINE / US | 16mm
A jovial and dreamy rumination on love. On time passing. On what we collect, what we hold on to, and how we maintain connection to homeplace, to ourselves.
THE LETTER FROM TOMORROW
NATALIA BEK-GERGARD | 2023 | 06:00 | UKRAINE / CANADA | 16mm
This film is a dedication to all victims of totalitarian regimes. Can a single image tell a story of the invisible thread that interweaves past and present tragedies together? The film was my personal portal to my great-grandma Feodosia, my ancestors and time as a whole. Bridging five generations and more than a century, it created a new family archive of light and shadows on 16 mm film.
ME LOVING YOU / YOU LOVING ME
MIKEY ESTES | 2022 | 08:50 | US | 16mm
Shot on black-and-white 16mm film in the artist’s living room and in his childhood home, the film intimately documents his first tattoo made in tribute to his late mother. As the film progresses, moving still lives of the family home and personal mementos are layered atop of a textural soundscape that combines manipulated audio from “Mama” by the Spice Girls with field recordings, spoken text, and voicemails left by the artist’s mother.
WHEN THE SEEDS SAY ENOUGH
DOMINICK RIVERS | 2023 | 09:06 | US | SUPER 8
This work is an act of eulogy, an open letter to my late brother, with the thematic centerpiece being what remains of our childhood home. The left channel of the diptych, hand-developed in caffenol, invokes lived experience, whereas the right channel, culled from home videos, is a visual representation of videographic memory.

Through surreal worlds we explore the disconnect between humanity and nature. We are reminded that all living things are connected and collectively shared. Without judgment we can promote hope and reconnect, all it takes is a bit of reflection.
