At Least You Know You Exist 

Zackary Drucker


USA / 16 min
At Least You Know You Exist is a site-specific exploration of a fixed space where everything is in a state of change.

Deborah Kelly


Australia | 04:25
'Beastliness' 2011 is an animated video made from photomontage works in which a fantastic bestiary of creatures and women dance and morph, becoming each other and consuming each other. Kelly re-mythologises the feminine into the hybrid creatures that have lurked within the human imagination over millennia and through doing so questions the assumptions and fears that have swirled around gender roles and rules in western culture. She does so through the hyper-contemporary visual language of digital media while also referring to early 20th century photo-montage pioneers such as Hannah Hoch and the Dada movement. In moving from the natural to the unnatural and the supernatural, Kelly makes the point that nothing may be what it seems and that how we view each other is always mediated through cultural and social conditioning.

Jeunes et idéalistes, six amis décident de fuir et de vivre ensemble, en dépit des normes sociales et religieuses, à la suite du coming-out de l’un d’entre eux et de l’arrivée de son petit ami, battu par sa famille. Proclamé 1er film gay libanais et tourné sous protection militaire, Out Loud représente le désir de liberté d’une jeunesse libanaise contemporaine. Sa relative naïveté dans la mise en scène est rattrapée par l’audace de son propos, sa spontanéité et la poésie de plusieurs séquences musicales.

Where We Were Not: Feeling Reserved, Alexus’ Story

Jessica MacCormack and Alexus Young


Canada / 6 mins
In Feeling Reserved Alexus shares her story of a ‘starlight tour,’ a practice of police brutality against First Nations peoples in Canada where individuals are driven out of town, stripped of their coats and shoes, and left to freeze to death. In Alexus’ case, a couple happened to drive by her and she was saved. Nonetheless, the emotional scars remain, and many people were not so lucky. The realization that these murders are a continuation of the genocide of First Nations peoples today is horrifying for all. This work highlights the systemic violence at play and the silencing effect it produces.
