Staying With the Trouble, 2018
Alyona Larionova, HD Video and CGI, 14:05
A hybrid documentary film that follows a Kazakh berkutchi (eagle-hunter) on his journey to tame his wild eagle, Sadak. The film draws upon the unique bond between the hunter and his eagle to provide a meditation on power relations in a world dealing with security crisis and accelerating hyperconnectivity. Oscillating between states of control and submission, berkutchi, Sadak, a judoist, and a border control officer, offer viewers their own bodily interpretations of the constantly shifting power scales.

From the Crow’s Mouth, Digital and hand painted animation and illustrations. Animation Cindy Mochizuki, Sound Design Antoine Bédard, Editing Cande Andrade.


592 metroz goiti (Above 592 metres), 2018
Maddi Barber, Video, 24:30
On the slopes of the Navarrese Pyrenees, the construction of the Itoiz dam in the 1990s flooded seven villages and three nature reserves. A strip of bare land, 592 metres above sea level, today marks a dividing line within the landscape of the valley. Below that level, the water; above it, life goes on.
