SHORTS: RECORDED MEMORY
The past looms large in these stories. In Three Red Sweaters (USA, 10 min., Martha Gregory), the filmmaker combs through her grandfather’s 16mm family films, while Nantucket (USA, 8 min., Dylan Filingeri) recalls the director’s estranged father. The singer/songwriter for successful 1970s band Richard Twice (USA, 10 min., Matthew Salton) walks away from it all. Little Fiel (USA, 19 min., Irina Patkanian), a Mozambican artist, remembers growing up during a civil war. An escapee of the Boko Haram mass-kidnapping shares her story of Waiting For Hassana (Nigeria, 10 min., Ifunanya Maduka). Skull Fracture or “Aren’t you rather young to be writing your memoirs?” (Denmark, 29 min., Mads Hedegaard) exposes the inventive and organic confines of memory.
