aemi & IFI: FREE FROM NEAR OR FAR, SELECTED BY PAT MURPHY

From Monday September 6th, in line with government guidelines, all patrons must show proof of vaccination upon entering the cinema screen.

A series of short films selected and introduced by filmmaker Pat Murphy.

“Specific to time and place, these wide-ranging films challenge and collapse the concept of “near and far”. For me, they represent a re-enchantment of cinema at a point when the world can feel worn and tired. WolloW’s wild, energizing LONG SONG DREAM transformed a dark lockdown day. Abhijit Mazumdar and Amala Popuri’s SERENGETI is an extraordinary meditation on sound and image as the pandemic impinges on Mumbai. In Shivani Khattar’s highly original NOOR, a young girl isolated with her grandfather is confronted with the reality of transgressive desire. From her poetic early works to family dramas of memory, pain and loss, I think that all Song Ting’s films are important to see.” – Pat Murphy

This event will be introduced by Pat Murphy.
