A woman gives voice to Annie Ernaux’s text, The Years, through a few collected fragments from the shores of a timeless Sardinia. Neither the words nor the images, drawn from family films, are expected to complete the narration of her story: places from her past. The mountains on the coast, a seascape, gardens, terraces, and rooms of an apartment emerge like reflections of a fragmented and ever-changing memory, uncovered by a new light. The details in each gesture and each face, of scenes of a life lived amongst family, are reassembled and freed from their original context. They become expressive elements of a confession that is both a personal discovery and collective narration.
PRISONER OF SOCIETY
What does it mean to be a stranger in your own home and country? This film is an intimate journey into the world and mind of a young transgender woman, trapped between her personal desire for freedom and the traditional expectations of her parents that threaten their unity.
WHAT’S THE DAMAGE
A proposition and provocation, answering back to ongoing crises under white patriarchy, relaying and augmenting feelings and gestures of chronic unease, protest, and dissent.
