Shorts Program #3

Bye Bye Lullaby – Sonali Gulati and Rohan Gulati (Richmond, Virginia)

When you are forced to leave your home, what do you take and what do you leave behind? Using a single long take, Bye Bye Lullaby explores the meaning of belonging and belongings, transporting and being transported, passing away and passing down. 2022; 5 min.

Revelation to the Disembodied – André Silva (Wilmington, North Carolina)

Fragments of a collective post-human dream construct a world that straddles hyper-technological, mythological, and ecological dimensions. 2022; 9 min.

Stages of Lost Freedom – Kamran Rosen (Cambridge, Massachusetts)

Derek 'Dice' Livingston was incarcerated for nearly two decades, during which time he kept a journal of his thoughts. Mirroring the stages of loss—denial, depression, bargaining, anger, and acceptance— this animation uses Dice's own words and narration to show the emotional journey of losing one's identity to long term incarceration, with each entry brought to life by a different animator. 2022; 7 min.

***** To Be The Moon – Tyler March and Eric Paperth (Neptune City, New Jersey)

Jealous of the Sun’s stardom, the Moon journeys into space, searching for a planet that actually cares about him. Will he find his place in the universe, or is he destined to be a lonely loser forever? 2022; 11 min.

Documentary film about the New Jersey artist Helen Frank. 2022; 12 min.
