ANOTHER HORIZON (UNITED STATES)

BY STEPHANIE M BARBER

The horizon, where the sky and the earth meet, is always elsewhere, a promised place where these two elements come together. a metaphor, an orienting, a promise of transition, change, transcendence. a place where the corporeal and spiritual meet, or are cleaved apart. also, here, the space between narrative and documentary, fact and fiction, is scratched between two voices.

SERVES US RIGHT (UNITED KINGDOM)

BY JOLA KUDELA

"This video is a product of self-isolation during the coronavirus time, driven by the frustration of not being able to go outside, which for me was the direct consequence of our behavior as humans.

So, while locked-in, I was trying to find some kind of peace and relief through creativity." Running time: 00:02:00.

PUNTJUDITH – LICHTER (NETHERLANDS)

OPHELIA (GERMANY)

BY MEIKE REDEKER

Through a monologue spoken backwards, the video deals with discriminatory depictions of women in the past and present. In a river scene, resembling J. E.

On different levels the video moves forwards and backwards in time. Running time: 00:08:00.
