SHORTS BLOCK 6: Flow

10 min -- “FLEDGED” by Megan-Paige Hausner: FLEDGED documents five Pacific Northwest falconers with their birds through their daily life and activities. The falconers range from someone that does falconry as a hobby, to a falcon breeder, and to a bird abatement team.

17 min -- “The Game Changer” by Indrani Kopal: Every Sunday afternoon for the last seven years, Susan Slotnick has driven an hour up the mountains to the Woodbourne Correctional Facility, a medium security prison for men, to teach modern dance. The lives of men whom she touched have never been the same since. This is her story.

15 min -- “Never Again This Flower” by Hugo Obregon Goyarroia: Upon discovering that his friend is dead, Hou wanders around the streets that were once the setting of his relationship with him. He is grieving and the metropolis, Hong Kong, resonates within him in a special way.

13 min -- “Somebody's Mother” by Mandy Fabian: Maggie is perfectly fine with the fact that her mother, Alice, has started dating again. A lot. In front of her. And in front of her two small children. But when Alice springs her latest boy-toy on the family Christmas morning, Maggie's most wonderful time of the year turns into her worst nightmare, and she's left to wonder: who is the mother here?

12 min -- “The Hero Pose” by Mischa Jakupcak: The Hero Pose is a short film about Mia and her father, Joe, who is trying to sell a car that doesn’t run.  As the afternoon progresses, Mia and Joe uncover a lot about their relationship and end up connecting with one another in an unusual way.

04 min -- “PROXIMITY” by Joshua Cox: Proximity is a romantic crime drama in an unusual setting -- an elderly woman's living room. Her collection of ceramic statues have a life of their own. Two figures explore the depths of love and betrayal. Proximity illustrates how spatial relativity shapes our interactions with the world and people around us. Closeness can create the illusion of an unspoken bond, but when challenged by desire it can be turned on its head and shatter reality. (Animation)

10 min -- “GUSTAF” by Yann Caloghiris: Gustaf is a quiet, submissive husband. He has been out of work because of what he calls, 'his condition'. His only point of contact with the outside world is the launderette he visits regularly. This changes when he has a bizarre hallucination. As he begins to draw a connection between the pieces of the puzzle, visions grow in intensity until the truth finally reveals itself.

11 min -- “Chimera” by Luka Pascalicchio:  In apocalyptic world, Allen, a man with a free will measuring machine, is determined to find someone who can score over 8%.  His sister brings in a mentally challenged patient. Allen understands only the insane can display true free will, and when people from outside are about to break in, he has to go down the rabbit hole in order to find existence. Maybe being free simply means being crazy.
