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.

95 AND 6 TO GO was reviewed at RIDM by Jay Kuehner for Cinemascope. See excerpts and the full post below:
The film is in many ways a mutually sombre homecoming; the proverbial return to care for one’s elders becomes an active accounting of the past and provokes an unforeseen source of humble creativity.Read More
