The Films

This programme was curated by Ane Lopez.

Film is a fertile avenue for dreams – dreams that allow us to escape and disrupt the uncanny, enforced temporality we currently find ourselves in. Dreaming thus becomes an almost political act: a tool for unravelling the visible and invisible threads of a story, a way of learning how to occupy different time scales and understanding individual and collective ecological grief.

Akin to dream’s diluted time logic, these three quasi-mythical hybrid documentaries offer a shift of concentration through ripples in time, investigating a different type of cinematic activism that serves both as a tool for resisting collective oblivion and a way of reminding us of the ecological entanglements between the human and non-human.

What are the stories of the past and what is their influence on the future? Can a place remember? What do fossils dream across the millennia? What can we learn from the non-linear temporality of dreams? What is left of something when its presence is removed or when it suffers a radical transformation?
