Hunting

by Hauazkena Taldea - Begoña Vicario (Coordinator) 4:58 Spain

 

In 1969, artist Rafael Ruiz Balerdi made the short animated film “Homenaje a Tarzán” (“Homage to Tarzan”), which ended with an enigmatic ‘to be continued’. “Ehiza” (“Hunting”) is our continuation. In “Ehiza”, we accept Balerdi's aesthetic but step away from the colonial perspective of the films that inspired that work to depict the harshness of our own reality: harassment, violence and destruction.

The Fourfold

by Alisi Telengut 7:14 Canada 

Based on the ancient shamanic rituals and animistic beliefs in Mongolia and Siberia, the film explores the indigenous worldview and wisdom: Nature is the homeland of human being, Tengri is the deity and the father sky, Earth is the mother with rivers nourishing all beings, pagan and pantheist gods co-exist with all mortals.

Against the backdrop of the modern existential crisis and the human-induced rapid environmental change, there is a necessity to reconsider and reclaim the ideas of animism for planetary health and non-human materialities.
