Berlinale Shorts I

It Wasn’t the Right Mountain, Mohammad | Playback. Ensayo de una despedida | 2008 | Écume

The same old adventure recited in a new synthetic world, starring: God, Abraham, Isaac, a lost shepherd and the antelopes in the role of the Ram. Nobody is innocent.

“La Delpi”, the sole survivor of a group of transgender women and drag queens, remembers how lipstick, playback performances and improvised stage outfits galvanised the community and helped them in their struggle against AIDS and police violence.

Images of cherry blossom, luminous fields bursting with colour and miscellaneous domestic ephemera are photographed from the screen of an obsolete televisual device. A magical melody for the eyes, presented in 3D.

The car repair shop is their second home and their colleagues are like family. Everyone has their quirks and is accepted for the way they are. But then comes the bad news: they are soon to be squeezed out by a more lucrative new building project.

Expressions: The Queer Short Films of the 70th Berlinale

Untitled Sequence of Gaps | Babylebbe | Playback. Ensayo de una despedida | HaMa’azin | Who Can Predict What Will Move You | El nombre del hijo | Extractions | Panteres

Composed of vignettes in different techniques and materialities, Untitled Sequence of Gaps uses the form of an essay film to approach trauma-related memory loss via reflections on light outside the visible spectrum – on what is felt but never seen.

With BABYDYKE written across her forehead, Frede stubbornly sticks to her plan to win back her ex-girlfriend in a night of close encounters. The next day, her sister sees her in a different light – and Frede sees herself differently too.

“La Delpi”, the sole survivor of a group of transgender women and drag queens, remembers how lipstick, playback performances and improvised stage outfits galvanised the community and helped them in their struggle against AIDS and police violence.

He is young and works for Israeli military intelligence, listening in on conversations between Palestinians. The phone calls of a gay couple fascinate him more and more, and he is unsure whether and, if so, in what way he should follow his feelings.

Two young men shooting hoops somewhere in Brooklyn. Their shadows dance, entwined, to the cadence of basketball meeting pavement. Tentatively, gently, Livia Huang’s densely atmospheric film traces desire and intimacy through gazes and gestures.

Lucho knows who he is. It’s the others who seem mixed up, with their probing looks and pointed questions. Lovingly though awkwardly, a father attempts to support his trans-identifying child.

Extractions parallels resource extraction with the booming child apprehension industry. As the filmmaker reviews how these industries have affected her, she reflects on having her own eggs retrieved and frozen to make an Indigenous baby.

Joana examines the bodies of the women at the pool, her own reflection, and her classmates’ reactions. Her attempts to break through her girlfriend Nina’s bad mood are punctuated by experiments: with tampons, sketched penises and music.

Screening Shorts: We Are Many - Every Single One of Us

Girl and Body | Clebs | A Fool God | Playback. Ensayo de una despedida | Genius Loci

In the wake of a frightening collapse, a young dancer is hospitalized and struggles to regain control of her body against a strange force inside. A meditation on the relationship between mind, body and identity.

Inside the shelter, the dusty red earth is teeming with hundreds of stray dogs. Halima Ouardiri poetically portrays their dreary everyday life of eternal waiting, drawing socio-political parallels under the burning North African sun.

When Mesi helps her younger brother slaughter a rooster, she incurs her grandmother‘s wrath. Unable to make sense of the rigid old rituals, the girl creates her own understanding of belief and justice.

“La Delpi”, the sole survivor of a group of transgender women and drag queens, remembers how lipstick, playback performances and improvised stage outfits galvanised the community and helped them in their struggle against AIDS and police violence.

Young Reine is on the search, but she does not know what she is looking for. In delicate drawings and fluid animation, her perception becomes tangible.
