Event description
As the world fills the screen, our inclination to hold out our hands takes centre stage.

About this Event

Immerse yourself in the four seasons of the Arctic to hear the Inuit art of throat singing, watch a young Indian girl fighting against sexism through skateboarding and the support of her mother, and hear the man who turns a hearse into a pulpit to spread camaraderie through a drug-ravaged city. Facing against the poisonous confinements of gender, these figures cut through loss and hardship with a sharp and determined-spirit – and once you see yourself next to them, their voices will stay with you forever.

Screening: Saturday 21st September 13:45 | Monday 23rd September 13:15

Inferno

INFERNO is an explosive portrait of the lives of pyrotechnic artists and their families in the lead up to the festival of San Juan de Dios, where blazing revelry engulfs the town. Patrick Fileti / Mexico/ Australia/ 15min

Heroin Hearse

In the overdose capital of America, Dwayne Woods turns a vintage hearse into a mobile pulpit, preaching a message of life through the imagery of death. When he opens a rehab at the ground zero for heroin use, Dwayne hopes sheer compassion will trump experience when recruiting his first client. Ryan Buckley/ USA/ 12min

Serious Tingz

A short tale about the face of masculinity, portrayed by young men who grew up in inner-city environments. Where the iconic ‘screwface’ is more than just an expression, it’s a matter of life and death. Abdou Cisse/ UK/ 2min

Queen of the Dinosaurs: A Wrestler's Story

A portrait of professional wrestler Samantha Cohen, following her in and out of the ring, through tribulations of self-doubt and acceptance.

Eva and Manon practise the art of throat singing in their native Arctic land, in the small village of Kangirsuk. Interspliced with footage from the four seasons of Kangirsuk from Johnny Nassak. Eva Kaukai, Manon Chamberland / Canada/ 4min

Here, we are (Estamos, que es ganancia)

Rafael and Joel live in Santiago Tuxtla, a town in the state of Veracruz, Mexico that has been affected by the war on drugs. They have found a way to retain their humanity - through music. It builds community and combats fear, violence, and sadness. Viviana Zuñiga/ Mexico/ 13min

99 Problems

The inside scoop on the murky world of the ice cream business. Through the eyes of Pinky, the self-declared 'King of the Ice Cream Men', we're taken into this unregulated industry where rival drivers will stop at nothing to protect their livelihoods. Ross Killeen/ Ireland/ 13min

Kamali

Kamali is the only female skateboarder in her fishing village. Her timorous mother, Suganthi undertakes a pilgrimage in a quest for self-discovery. Separated for the first time, they must each find freedom in a man’s world. Sasha Rainbow/ UK/ 24min
