Invisible

 

Zofia PREGOWSKA

Poland | 2014 | 22’05’’

 

90-year-old Krystyna, lives in the tiny apartment surrounded by books and writing pads. That’s remarkable in itself since Krystyna is almost blind, but that doesn’t stop this still vital woman from writing passionate and eloquent poetry that celebrates life. She scrawls her poems herself, but this turns out

to be an unreliable method because one of her pens doesn’t work, meaning

a recent poem is almost illegible. “My poems are vanishing into the void!” she cries out, writing yet another beautiful poem on this very subject. In the meantime, she is preparing for an important journey to a declamation contest where she hopes to share her poems with the audience.

Skyline Memory Vanish In The Air

 

Beatriz RUIBAL

Spain | 2015 | 23’25’’

 

This is a visual document that addresses the concepts of the city, modernity, urban planning and memory from a poetic perspective. Skyscrapers are portrayed as immense receptacles of memories, symbols of the power of cities: figuratively stepping inside these buildings, imagining the different forms of human existence, speculating on the virtues and miseries concealed in the privacy of each home. The piece is articulated by narratives based on personal experiences, autobiographical details, real facts and cultural and social events, questioning and fictionalising time and life itself in the neverending process of construction and collapse.
