Programme features

COMMODITY CITY
Dir. Jessica Kingdom / USA — China / 2016 / 10'
A glimpse inside the cavernous belly of capitalism's bilious over-productivity, Yiwu Market in China is five miles long. Buried in gaudy goods, tempers flare and boredom reigns.

BALLOONFEST
Dir. Nathan Truesdell / USA / 2016 / 6’
Mid-1980s Cleveland is excitedly gearing up for an event that will showcase the city: releasing 1.5 million balloons into the air. What could go wrong?

FISH STORY
Dir. Charlie Lyne / UK / 2017 / 13’
Caspar Salmon recounts his grandmother’s well-worn tale of a grand opening in Anglesey populated by fish-surnamed guests. The legend unfolds, despite a few red herrings.

BEDSIDE MANNER
Dir. Corinne Botz / USA / 2016 / 18’
Doctors training with medical actors is an uncanny sight. Neurologist Dr Alice Flaherty explores the act of sickness and health, the performance of truth and empathy.

THE LAST TAPE
Dir. Igor Kosenko, Cyprien Clement-Delmas / Germany / 2017 / 12’
As Artiom prepares to fight for the Ukrainian army, Anatoly, his 88-year-old foster-grandfather and war veteran, records their diminishing time together and questions his choice.

ÜBERMENSCH
Dir. Jesper Dalgaard / Denmark / 2016 / 22’
Clouds gather as a pair of youths prepare a ritual in a vacant coastal church in Denmark. These teen goths explore their angst and pursue their own personal Jesus.

THE RABBIT HUNT
Dir. Patrick Bresnan / USA — Hungary / 2017 / 12’
A tranquil dawn in Florida is disrupted by an urgent call. Following a century-old migrant farm worker tradition, a family rush to a flaming sugarcane field.
