CREATURA, 13min., Canada
Directed by Ford Mckeown Larose, Phethsari Pathammavong
If the world were to recreate itself in an empty space, how would new forms of life appropriate this environment? How would they evolve? Through lights and movements, Creatura explores the concept of genesis and evolution in a post-apocalyptic universe.

V838, 2min., UK
Directed by Oliver Kane
Inspired by the new extraterrestrial frequencies of V838 Monocerotis (a binary star system) that open the track (written by Tiggi Hawke & Oliver JT Dipre as the introduction to her upcoming album ‘Ascension’), the concept revolves around a solar storm which is occurring above Earth.

MEMORIAM, 2min,. USA
Directed by Lyla Ruth
My dad passed away recently and I’ll be completely honest here, watching him die slowly from cancer is a hell I would not wish on my worst enemy.
Family and friends ask me how I am feeling, or how I am handling it all. In actuality, the emotions are too intense to verbalize.

FLORA, 10min., Norway, Music Video
Directed by Liv Nome
FLORA is a musical poem and the lyrics is in my local Norwegian dialect from Kristiansand. Translated for english subtitles in the video that was released 30.12.20.

THE AIR YOU BREATHE, 4min., Columbia, Music Video
Directed by Sara Lucia Birceño, Leonardo Jurado
The air you breathe is inspired by those couple conversations in which there is nothing left but the breakup. Between disagreements, fights and wounds we try to rebuild memories that are no longer common between two people. It is a reflection on love that can no longer be decided by one party.

ELVIS PRESLEY – UNCHAINED MELODY, 3min., USA, Music Video
Directed by Gabriel Tick
A reverse telling of Elvis’ musical journey from Vegas, Nashville, Memphis, to Tupelo, MS where his love of music was born and thrived in its purest form. Special attention to specific details from Elvis life are depicted and interwoven with creative allegory in this homage to the king of Rock n’ Roll.

FOUNTAIN, 28min, UK
Directed by Alexandrina Hemsley
Building on Yewande 103’s current body of work around embodied advocacy, Fountain blends together dance and digital watery environments to explore tidal cycles of repair, loss, joy and intimacy. This powerful work draws on the symbolism and psycho-geography of water as inevitably linked to Black histories, embodiments, experiences and mental health.

SALT, 3min., Germany, Fashion
Directed by Dominik Hill
“Salt” tells the story of a group of people, who put away their fear of the elemental forces of nature and instead rediscover natural power, returning a bit to their own roots.
