Filmmakers Kimi Takesue and Terron Jones in person for a post screening discussion.
From animation to speculative realism, this program of short films images and imagines migration and exile due to endless war, economic inequality, and environmental disaster. The protagonists in these films encounter loss as well as unexpected love, often moving from the Global South to the Global North and sometimes back again, navigating spaces underground or underwater in a series of departures and returns.
