Program Order:

 

La Ultima Ascension (2022, 23:15 min, The Netherlands)

Kevin Osepa

Rowin, a 22-year-old fisherman from Banda Abou (Curaçao) has little luck catching fish at his fishing spot. He goes there everyday despite the disapproval of his mother. One day, on the coastline where he fishes daily, he encounters a mysterious young man who will change everything.

 

Stompen (2021, 13:01 min, The Netherlands)

Thomas Bos & Erik Bos

Patrick is angry and wants to destroy everything. When he is forced to take a course in anger management, he meets other enraged people. An experimental therapist tries to squeeze out their brutal energy through dance. Can Patrick find a way to redirect his violent energy into something of value?

 

Mother Of…  (2023, 7:00 min, Miami)

Hattie Williams

Mother Of… dreams the effects of spiritually, physically, and energetically transmuting non consensual violent earth offerings of our ancestors, children, and loved ones, through blood rituals mandated by women. How has our complacency and participation in violent energy and offerings towards our earth affected the elements and those who are coming?

 

Caracoles en Cemento (2023, 10:00 min, World Premiere, Miami)

Nicole Pedraza and Trish Gutierrez

By collecting and incorporating the audio clips of a group of young adults who grew up in Miami, “Caracoles en Cemento” hopes to begin humanizing Miami’s reputation. Taking inspiration from the Fibonacci sequence, the dance film steps into the repetitive response the city is taking to climate change.

 

Parades (2022, 16:52 min, Florida Premiere, Quebec)

Alan Lake

Parades is an initiation to a mysterious pagan feast made by powerful images between a fantasy and an allegory.

 

Traveler (2020, 18:00 min, World Premiere, Miami)

Ariel Rose and Skylar Campbell

A musician trapped at home, afraid to leave during the pandemic. The journey of his thoughts and emotions during his entrapment from sullen, to despair to hopeful. Translated through dance and its environments.
