Forum Expanded Berlinale Shorts Mix

Entropia | Past Perfect | Part One: Where There Is a Joyous Mood, There a Comrade Will Appear to Share a Glass of Wine. | Meridian | Can’t you see them? – Repeat.

Entropia – a life without bras is possible, or how a fly paralysing the systems. An animated film from Hungary in which colour is hardly the only thing to lustfully explode.

Past Perfect is a melancholic film – the archaeological investigation of the state of mind of our present.

A promise of a new type of family structure: Questioning how a group’s sense of commonality is dissolved when there is an absence of communal experience and adherence to linear time, the film concerns affective relations and community building.

Meridian follows the last unit in a fleet of autonomous machines sent to deliver an emergency vaccine. Searching for parallels between automation and purgatory, depression and malfunction, it looks at how human drama is inscribed onto the inanimate.

Sarajevo during the siege in 1992: Armed men cross a river. The artist reconstructs the movements of the filming camera that were shot from the vantage point of a skyscraper with a motion-tracking program. A body forms. The trauma becomes visible on the screen.

Parsi | Part One: Where There Is a Joyous Mood, There a Comrade Will Appear to Share a Glass of Wine. | A Tiny Place That is Hard to Touch

Parallel to the list of “what seems to be but isn’t” from the poem “No es” by Mariano Blatt, Parsi observes spaces and people in a perpetual movement to create another poem that is caressed by, crashes into, and spins next to “No es”.

A promise of a new type of family structure: Questioning how a group’s sense of commonality is dissolved when there is an absence of communal experience and adherence to linear time, the film concerns affective relations and community building.

By a canal in Eastern Tokyo, an American woman hires a Japanese woman to translate interviews about Japan’s declining birthrate. Their story is frequently interrupted by tales from a world infected with the knowledge of its own demise.
