THIS SCREENING CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING FILMS

Horror Vacui

Matteo Zamagni | Experimental, New Media, Nature | 03:27 | United Kingdom

Film Screening 1 DOWN BY THE WATER - Film Screening 2 DOWN BY THE WATER

Geological fractals of Earth and the frenetic hyper-development attained by mankind. It reflects upon the alienation from nature as well as the act of perceiving, and the biased interpretation of the notion of "reality". By mixing CGI and real footage, it blurs the distinction between reality and its digital recreation.

The Wind Phone

Kristen Gerweck | Fiction, Drama, Loss | 16:04 | United States

Film Screening 1 DOWN BY THE WATER - Film Screening 2 DOWN BY THE WATER

There is a journey of seven strangers. Each is drawn to the same remote and eerie phone booth on a Japanese cliffside, although their conversations couldn’t seem more different. It is not until one of the callers extends a consoling hand to another, that we begin to understand that they are all connected by one harrowing reality.

Underwater

Michael Keogh | Fiction, Drama, Young Adult | 122:38 | United Kingdom

Film Screening 1 DOWN BY THE WATER - Film Screening 2 DOWN BY THE WATER

To be always first is hard work. But to be always first in the crowd of winners is much harder. Jack, an achiever in-and-out of the pool, learns that winning isn’t everything. As acknowledgement and adulation fades, who is there for him when he really needs it? On the surface everything’s calm but underwater tides are turning.

Venus Pool

Luciënne Venner | Art-house, Experimental, LGBTQ+ | 3:42 | The Netherlands

Film Screening 1 DOWN BY THE WATER - Film Screening 2 DOWN BY THE WATER

The water can be not only a place of peaceful drifting, but it can also serve as a place where you reflect on your life. Talks, conclusions, new plans. Seeing your partner in a dream as a sea urchin: What could it mean? Is there a dialogue between various mysterious women in which dance of dreaming and wandering arises?

Two Puddles

Timothy Keeling | Fiction, Dark Comedy | 06:00 | United Kingdom

Film Screening 1 DOWN BY THE WATER - Film Screening 2 DOWN BY THE WATER

A family’s peaceful day of picnics and hikes in the woods is interrupted when they stumble upon two puddles that will test the strength of their bond. It takes a simple yet extremely original idea and transforms it into a punchy six-minute watch with the help of an imposing score, lively editing and real-life grave diggers.
