Rethinking Space. The heady journey of Aline Magrez’ NO’I offers 21st-century Hanoi’s answer to 1920s “Symphonies of the City,” sometimes quotidian and sometimes surreal while Simon Liu’s multilayered Highview abstracts personal moments with his family during a trip home to Hong Kong. Janie Geiser’s Flowers of the Sky recasts history from two silent found photos, yet Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet’s Incantati distills the encounter of cinema and dramaturgy. Finally, Billy Roisz and Dieter Kovacic’s TOUTES DIRECTIONS proves that we will never see a road movie the same way again. Total: 71min.
