Kill Your Idioms

Grant Kolton | United States, United Kingdom | 2020 | 3 min

What happens if idioms acquire concrete and literal visual forms? Will their meanings withstand such transformations? What new meanings and jokes can they incorporate in their new visual forms? Will they survive? The director of this playful film reflects on the consequences of literality. These puns are, however, almost non-transferrable to a different language.

Homeless Home

Alberto Vázquez | France, Spain | 2020 | 15 min

In this bitterly metaphoric but all the more truthful film, the director explores the theme of returning to one’s roots to point out many social patterns and issues we encounter at the margins and elsewhere. Finding the courage to change where your life is headed is not easy whether you’re a zombie, a witch or a mere human being.
