Shorts: Cicada 69 (2021)

  • Documentary
  • 1h 9m

In these four ethereal shorts bodies move in spaces both simulated and real, emerging from the darkness, manipulated by unseen forces. In O arrais do mar (dir. Elisa Celda, 18 min) we witness a traditional form of nighttime fishing as hookups happen along the shore. Homage to the Work of Philip Henry Gosse (dir. Pablo Weber, 22 min) sends our fascination with historical artifacts spiralling into some truly unexpected locales. We navigate military training and post-traumatic stress through video game development in My Own Landscapes (dir. Antoine Chapon, 18 min), and, finally, experience the joyful chaos of Carnival in Galicia just days before pandemic lockdown in The Bodies (dir. Eloy Domínguez Serén, 11 min.) (AC) [Teleported T/F]
