Resurrection, directed by Anna Tan

Filmed in J. Hood Wright Park located in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, this film portrays the jarring reality of integrating back into society in a search to find “normalcy” after isolating and quarantining during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. What was once mundane and routine may suddenly feel uncomfortable and unsettling, especially in navigating boundaries in both the public and private spheres. Nevertheless, this piece also seeks to provide a sense of hopefulness and optimism in that our communities will continue to be resilient and thrive.

Opening Ceremony

An experimental dance film that invites viewers to interpret it as if it were a dream. It revolves around a chance encounter between a dancer and a businessman in New York City, a portal that opens them to new experiences, and the bizarre characters they encounter along the way, inspired by the free-wheeling and spontaneous style of French New Wave cinema. Starring Rishi Mukherjee and Sloka Iyengar, with an original musical score by Matt Burkett. Dance director: Julia Bengtsson. Get ready for a wild ride!

The Gorgon Cycles
The Gorgon Cycles, directed by Miles Inada, Devyn McConachie, Tessa Brinckman

The Gorgon Cycles is an animated fever dream – an intricately layered invocation for the return of the long-banished visionary, Medusa. Built around a mesmerizing original score for alto flute and electronica, with a supporting cast of fish, snakes, dinosaurs, a cat, a monkey, and a magician, The Gorgon Cycles is a statement of violent optimism –- a contemplation of life on the brink of global catastrophe.
