A series of short films selected and introduced by filmmaker Pat Murphy

Specific to time and place, these wide-ranging films challenge and collapse the concept of “near and far”. For me, they represent a re-enchantment of cinema at a point when the world can feel worn and tired. WolloW’s wild, energizing LONG SONG DREAM transformed a dark lockdown day. Abhijit Mazumdar and Amala Popuri’s SERENGETI is an extraordinary meditation on sound and image as the pandemic impinges on Mumbai. In Shivani Khattar’s highly original NOOR, a young girl isolated with her grandfather is confronted with the reality of transgressive desire. From her poetic early works to family dramas of memory, pain and loss, I think that all Song Ting’s films are important to see. – Pat Murphy
