Look Beyond: Shorts

Saturday 9 November

13:00 - 13:45 Old School

Film can introduce viewers to an unknown world. The big screen can show us places we have never visited, cultures we’ve never seen up close and rituals that are unfamiliar to us. But how can this passive viewing lead to true understanding? LIFF: Look Beyond aims to look at ways in which film creates understanding. From virtual reality to film techniques, from story-tellers to lectures. Join us on Saturday 9 November!

All These Creatures:
An adolescent boy attempts to untangle his memories of a mysterious infestation, the unravelling of his father, and the little creatures inside us all.

Ashmina:
In an impoverished country, rife with contradiction, a young girl is torn between her obligation to her family and the influence of foreign visitors.

Cowboy:
In a few days Minas is going to participate in the tv show Talent of the year. Minas must win to fulfill his dreams. What's his talent? He is a cowboy. in Athens. Cowboy is a mockumentary, where a tv crew follows 47 year old Minas in his everyday life interviewing him and his closest people until the big day of the show.

Il Mondiale in Piazza:
November 2017: the Italian national football team does not qualify for the 2018 world championship. There are people who can’t live without having their national team to support; they hang around in the squares, feeling useless and purposeless. In the deep South of Italy, a group of them do not give up and decide to set up a parallel world championship to be played right in their hometown square. Italy will compete against other national teams made by immigrants. But some of them were born and raised in Italy and they feel Italian 100%. So, what? There’s only one solution: two Italian teams will play against each other. And we will see who wins.
