Dark light voyage
Tin Dirdamal & Eva Cadena
66 min / 2021 / Mex-Vietnam
A Buddhist anti-parable of a journey into the dark light. His daughter looked out the window. It was 20 kilometres away from the Run Tribe-a people who are said to have been feeding a fire since the beginning. If they were to let fire die, humanity would cease to exist. The journey was by train, from the north to the south of Vietnam because the man could not be in one place. He needed to be neither here nor there to understand that thing that so preturbed him.

B-ROLL with Andre
James N. Kienitz Wilkins
18´30 / 2015 / USA
B-ROLL with Andre is equally a standalone movie and the unofficial "sequel" to Special Features (2014) and TESTER (2015).At some point in an unspecified future, the internal narrative picks up a thread of characters introduced in Special Features and discussed in TESTER, remixing current events, personal theories and video technology in an unholy alliance. The three movies were produced in sequential video formats(BetaSP, MiniDV, HD) which correspond to the timeframes of each story (prequel, original, sequel). However, if the movies are screened together, they would ideally be presented in order of production (Special Features, TESTER, B-ROLL with Andre).

Echo is set in the border between Mexico and USA and it is an ethnographic research on the after life and "echoes" of 9 art works that have been part of the two-decade old public art event called inSite. It highlights the procedures of intrusion at work in such a site as the US-Mexico border as well as the now canonical deployment of the emblematic figure of fieldwork. It teaches us that intrusion is an ontological dimension of intervention, at once anthropological, curatorial, and artistic.
