PORTUGAL PREMIER

A voyage through time, evolution and the kingdoms of life towards the natural destruction wrought upon the planet by the human species. Exploring geological epochs and kingdoms of life, Realms voyages through deep time from the primeval ocean to a post-human future. The film employs visual storytelling, seeking to replace the anthropocentric worldview with greater attention to the complex interrelationships and dependencies between organisms, and between animate and inanimate nature.

 
     

Run Out
Tamas Lévárdi
Great Britain / 2020 / 0:09:37

Run out is a short drama. Following the morning of a likable but odd character, the story portrays a number of issues in our modern society, such as alienation, over-exposure to social media, isolation, the stress from the everyday grind, the anxiety of being different in any way, or just living in a bad environment where we can't be ourselves and our lives are filled with the fear of accepting ourselves for who we are. The film uses strong visuals to communicate its messages. From the symbolism of how the natural lighting helps break the story into chapters, to the constant symmetrical compositions, the film is filled with subliminal messages and references.
