A SEASON IN FRANCE
Director: Mahamat-Saleh Haroun
A Season in France takes a close look at the borrowed time of two African refugees that are fighting for a second chance in life after fleeing their war-torn country. Abbas, once a school teacher, and his brother Etienne, once a philosophy professor, have left those identities behind in exchange for an inhospitable country that refuses to give them asylum.
Director: Rodney Evans
Exploring art through the perspective of four visually impaired artists and their disciplines of photography, dance, writing and film, Vision Portraits examines the worth placed on sight in an art scene which revolves so entirely around the seeing audience. Visually striking and emotionally enrapturing, queer filmmaker Rodney Evans delicately balances archive footage, interview and experimental imagery to draw the viewer into a world where the clear-cut binaries of visibility and blindness, outward and inward, are continually being deconstructed.
