Atlantic Auteurs #1

This event has passed.

Experimentation takes many forms in this manic showcase of new short works from Atlantic Canada. NSCAD professor Solomon Nagler premieres skin of the cit-y, a hand-manipulated 16mm work, while his student Yalitsa Riden exploits digital tools to make her HIFF debut with the split-screen sensory experience Death Flame. Danny Boos returns to HIFF with the realist drama Bound – a sharp departure from his earlier experimental work – and Seth Smith’s Wind Through a Tree offers a series of peephole vignettes that evoke a long lost America’s Funniest Home Videos episode no one was ever, ever supposed to see.
