2018 SDAFF Spring Showcase

Welcome to the 8th Annual SDAFF Spring Showcase

Posted March 19th, 2018 by Brian in Uncategorized

This Spring Showcase, we invite you to gaze into the distance. See unto forever. Picture a cinema with endless possibilities, a utopia of representation outside the washed-out mainstream. Creativity, entertainment, and inspiration in perpetual motion.

On one hand: the time loop of the omnibus film WARU, in which every short film starts at 10:00AM on the same day, tracing the boundless emotional possibilities of a single cross-section of time. On the opposite end: visions of the infinite in Yayoi Kusama’s polka dots and mirror rooms, recounted with wonderment in KUSAMA – INFINITY. In between: the time travel rom-com TAKE ME TO THE MOON, a circular tale of what-ifs. Or the quiet magic of Yasmin Ahmad’s films: messages from the future in MUKHSIN, or the lights that, one by one, dim to black only to begin a new story at the end of her final feature TALENTIME.

Imagine because we must: images that rewind history, music that never dies, and tastes that cross oceans. To survive and to resist means aiming beyond the horizon. Together, we won’t miss.
