Crocodile-men, a mystic river, some kids that like fishing and a war that ends share the same Colombian land; Bojaya. In this place, villagers have strange beliefs and celebrate the “Novenario” death ritual. This might be the beginning of a very long story, where spirits and humans meet each other to learn what is there to life after the end of war. WA State Premiere

3. The Exile

Sri Lanka | 2018 | 7 min | Rajee Samarasinghe
Shot improvisationally in 2010, shortly after the end of the Sri Lankan civil war, this film takes a lyrical approach to examining recent history and the process of reconstruction in the post-war era. The visions of an exile are carried through an immoral silence, to an end both dubious and bittersweet. WA State Premiere

Weaving together two stories over several locations, including an unnamed forest lined with canyons, an inter-tribal community center, and a roadside American Indian museum on a farm in Wisconsin, Arrow is a reflection on cultural continuity, disappearance, and transformation in the wake of historical forces and the passage of time. US Premiere. Filmmaker will be in attendance.
