REBORN - Dancing with Wind by Meg Ohsada

Wind carries hope, and it will never be extinguished. Even in the worst destruction, the earth comes back with wisdom and courage. Wrapped by my heritage, given the place to dance, I'm strong, serene and hopeful. I am grateful to stand on the traditional land and be allowed to share my culture and learning there.

Purple Flames by Kathy M. Austin

In confronting her fear of fire, Kathy M. Austin used a poem she wrote in 2003, a painting she’d made around the same time, and a diorama she created to demonstrate that she could endure fire and dance through it if the flames were cool and a flowery purple.

Nocturne by Alexander Depuis

Nocturne takes a dreamy audiovisual journey that is equal parts animated op art and sci-fi cartoon. Propelled by the music of Kirsten Volness and Blevin Blectum, Nocturne follows its silent protagonist in search of an elusive piano, traversing worlds populated by illusory architecture, synaesthetic physics, and an exceptionally large American bushtit.

Lightfall by Hermann Kayode

LightFall is an experimental animated video and battle-centered, also the stars humanized constellation featured in the movie are the Geminies.
