Short Film: JE NE REGRETT RIEN, 4min., UK, Animation/Experimental

 

1bd2e70b91 posterJe ne regrette rien is an animated contemplation on nostalgia, made during Covid-19 lockdown in the UK.

In a surreal landscape, dominated by a huge screen, ordinary people dance the dances of everyday life, dulled by the call to nostalgia.

In a week in which VE day celebrations collided with Black Lives Matter protests we began to question the persistence of nostalgia as a form of social control.

Short Film: A POEM IN BAMBOO, 4min., Animation/Horror

E7aa823cf5 poster

Life is not always smooth. When bad things happen, some people are lucky enough to move on, but not the old lady A-Yuan. Either because of the deepest love to her lover or social constriction, that women should belong to her husband. A-Yuan was trapped in the past after the death of her lover. The big house contains lots of memories; the illusion of happiness lives that created by A-yuan and those good times between the nephew and A-Yuan when he was a kid.

However, there is no way to stop the time or go back to the past. For those who are unwilling to move forward, there must be a story behind it. And that is difficult for outsiders to understand what they have been through. This film is a glimpse of a traditional silence woman who doesn’t talk much but has lots of secrets in her mind.

Short Film played at the December 2016 Family/Animation Film Festival.

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO of the short film:

  MOVIE POSTERSISTERS, 4min, USA, Animation/Music Video
Directed by David Chontos

A fragment of some lost, tragic opera. Trapped in the ruins of their former glory, a pair of performers bound together and abandoned by time rise up to sing once more. Conjured up by the song to which it’s set, the film represents a sincere vision of inspiration derived from the music of Karin Dreijer Andersson (Fever Ray).
