Meetings, meanings and myth begin with The Tesla World Light (Matthew Rankin), the animation of Nikola Tesla’s meeting J.P. Morgan – an ambiguous historical encounter that explodes into electric filmmaking. On the Paris metro, a chance meeting of two Bulgarians in The Elms (Marion Desseigne-Ravel) prefigures another transformation. The shadowy cave lighting of An Excavation of Us (Shirley Bruno) lets us encounter Haitian history. While in Blau (David Jansen), we ourselves meet a whale in multiple and lyrically animated dimensions. The Craft (Monira Al Qadiri) grapples with the meetings and meanings of popular culture and modernities. Finally, Wren Boys (Harry Lighton) returns us to violent encounters in contemporary Ireland, where love and family have real costs. Total: 78min.
