1. In this 60 second-film the Mexican artist Tania Candiani constructs word-by-word a visual performance by recuperating the title and first sentence of Clarice Lispector´s novel through hand-sewn balloons that the artists inflates and deflates. Derived from a larger series of works called "Tales and Other Nightmares" Candiani appropriates the opening line of stories written by authors such as Camus, Kundera and Duras, unfolding new narrative possibilities `blowed´by a shared origin.

  3. In A Space Exodus, Larissa Sansour quirkily sets up an adapted stretch of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in a Middle Eastern context.

    The film follows the artist herself on a phantasmagoric journey through the universe echoing Kubrick’s thematic concerns for human evolution, progress and technology. However, in her film, Sansour posits the idea of a first Palestinian in space, and, referencing Armstrong’s moon landing, she interprets this theoretical gesture as “a small step for a Palestinian, a giant leap for mankind”.

    This five-minute short is packed with highly produced visual imagery. The arabesque elements ranging from the space suit to the music are merged within a dreamy galactic setting and elaborate special effects. A great deal of attention is paid to every detail of the film to create a never before seen case of thrillingly magical Palestinian displacement.
