In Alice’s Four Stories, Myriam Jacob-Allard explores a story which, because of its persistence, is part of the family lore. This story, told countless times by her grandmother, is an implausible tale of the time a hurricane worthy of “The Wizard of Oz”, when she was a child, picked her up and sent her flying.
The picture in the video is split in two and shows images taken from the internet or from disaster films that document tornados and hurricanes on one side and the artist reading a weather forecast against an amateurish green background on the other. Here Jacob-Allard lip-synchs a story told by her grandmother. A montage/collage of images to her left flows past to illustrate the story. The visual codes of the television weather forecast quickly become secondary to four different versions of her grandmother’s story, which Jacob-Allard recorded over a ten-year period. Over the years, the story changes. The key points remain but the sequence of events differs and, curiously, the more time passes, the further back the story goes, with her grandmother saying she was fourteen, then thirteen, twelve, and eleven years old. Alice’s Four Stories, in its many offshoots, becomes a kind of essay on memory, passing on, and belonging. (France Choinière)

Flying Low is a spatio-temporal journey inside of a DC3 aeroplane, in which different historical and dream episodes are narrated from a singular voice. These old surviving aircraft from the Second World War are still used daily throughout the Colombian flatlands and jungles, and they are essential in reaching remote and inhospitable areas abandoned by the State.
A trip with unusual stories and aerial reflections that passes through different places, landscapes, visions and perspectives, until reaching the boarding and meeting of an unexpected passenger. The obsolete machine is witness to a physical and temporary suspension in the always imminent shadow of the accident. Nature and dilapidated aircraft confront their destiny, hybridize and combine. Suspension in time and resistance to the processes of modernization and progress are the ellipse of this story. Long live the DC3!

Sunday, Fulesee. Two people go diving in a lake. They understand each other without a word, everything seems ok. The dive leads them not only to fish and into darkness, but it also reaches into the depths of their souls. At 30 metres below the surface, fears and stories for which they cannot find any signs in diving language suddenly rise up.

“The Knowledge of London” is the in-depth study of over 300 London street routes and thousands of places of interest. These must be completely memorized by any aspiring driver who wants a license to operate in London’s black taxi cab profession.
This short film features two interviews with London taxi drivers who recount their experience of “doing The Knowledge”. Accompanying these interviews are animated Lidar scans of London. Lidar is a laser-based 3D mapping technology used by self-driving cars to see and navigate. The film journeys through the minds of taxicab drivers, through 3D scans of London streets, and through what might be lost when a centuries-old profession adapts to the prospect of automation.

A musical path in the countryside of southern Italy, through the gaze of a folk musician in her early twenties and the pieces of an old never-finished film, between the discovery of the healing power of music and the residual dynamics of patriarchy.
On the traces left by the practice of tarantism in Salento, Enza (Vincenza Magnolo), a very young researcher of traditional music, created her personal path of spiritual and psychological healing, transforming her own malaise through the singing and the repetitive rhythm of the frame drum. As the images of the scorching and colour-saturated countryside flow, the verses of the ancient songs of Salento weave a musical tale of gender oppression, of subtle power dynamics, from which the woman finds relief in fact by singing. Through the fragments of this film, started ten years ago and never completed, the director reflects on the deorphanization process from her own roots and on the ancient healing practices of her land. By tracing the delicate and intimate portrait of an extraordinary young woman and her ability to speak to women in the present, she finally recognizes the threads that bind her firmly to Enza’s experience, to what she has left and which still resonates today.

Around a loud meal, in a bed where we shared a pack of cookies, a discussion while we were washing, I was preparing to eat and mom had just brought home a bouquet of flowers to put on the living room piano. I should have never fucked him, she did so well to sleep with her, I'll call you tomorrow to talk, I first have to call my grandmother.
Friendship, love, family, relationships, interactions, death, women, men, food, that all gathers and divides, and it’s porous.
