Shorts 2 Home When

Home When You Return
| United States | 30 | Carl Elsaesser | 
Stretching and blurring the boundaries of video essay, experimental film and home movie, traces of a 1950s homemade melodrama by amateur filmmaker Joan Thurber Baldwin intermingle with a mournful homage to the author's grandmother and her vacated home. A powerful melange of cinematic and domestic spaces, past and present. --Kevin B Lee

Grandma's Scissors | Taiwan, United States | 6 | Erica Sheu | 
Guided by the words of her grandmother, the filmmaker explores the synesthetic properties of memory. Images give way to haptic experience via a range of textures -- of sea, celluloid, paper, and pencil traces, of raindrops drifting in and out of focus -- linking the arts of textiles and montage into a shared artisanal tradition. --Leo Goldsmith, NYFF

(The Wind That Carries Us Home) | Mongolia, United States | 11 | Udval Altangerel | 
Through rituals of birth and death, the filmmaker and her family reconnect with their ancestral land in the Gobi Desert.

little trumpet | United States | 30 | Megan Trufant Tillman | 
A nine-year-old loner wants his brother to teach him how to play the trumpet. In the 7th Ward of New Orleans, that's not so simple.

Mawhialeo Ote Alowha / Our Love | New Zealand | 16 | Valeriya Golovina |
Meli and her husband Avito reflect on the pivotal decision of their lives. With much trepidation they left the tiny atoll of Tokelau for New Zealand seeking a better life for their son. 43 years on, they find themselves pulled between family and a longing for home.
