STILL / HEAR
We are delighted to be collaborating with ÚNA Festival for this special event exploring ancestral tradition, climate justice and environmental balance at the intersection of film, eco-activism, sound healing performance and visual arts.
Alongside short films from Peru, Ecuador and Chile, Colombian artist Liliana Romero (Lilophilia), Mexican sound performer Ruben Vucubcame, and Zimbabwean-Scottish artist and curator Sekai Machache interact in a space where myth, imagination, spirituality and the voices of those silenced invite audiences to reflect on our relationship to soil, earth, water, identity and memory.
All films are captioned for d/Deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions about access for this event.
(Eriberto Gualinga, Ecuador, 2021, 17 min, Amazonian Kichwa)
A family in the Ecuadorian Amazon is spending lockdown in the relative safety of the jungle. As they reconnect with dormant ancestral knowledge, away from the distractions of modern life, their affinity with nature begins to flourish.
The Roots Weaver
(Fernando Saldivia Yáñez, Chile, 2020, 10 min, no dialogue)
A poetic observation of the indigenous Yaghan art of grass- weaving as developed in Chile, The Roots Weaver embeds this intergenerational process into the aural and visual textures that sustain it.
And That Is How The Rivers Came To Be
(Miguel Araoz Cartagena, Canada, USA/Peru, 2019, 3 min, Kukuma)
The enchanting Peruvian legend of a Kukama god comes alive in this animated film about the creation of the vast, winding rivers of the Amazon.
To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.
