01 WawaWawa

Sky Hopinka

6 min., Video, 2014, USA

“This is an anxious video. Featuring speakers past and present of chinuk wawa, an Indigenous language from the Pacific Northwest, Wawa begins slowly, patterning various forms of documentary and ethnography. Quickly, the patterns become tangled and confused, translating and transmuting ideas of cultural identity, language, and history.” – Sky Hopinka

Anna Kipervaser

8 min., Video, 2014, USA

“Chora (Greek: χώρα) can mean one of several things. A place outside of place. Or an interval. The between. Where things are born. Or.” – Anna Kipervaser


03 Evaporating BordersEvaporating Borders

Iva Radivojevic

73 min., 16mm on Video, 2014, USA/Cyprus

“Evaporating Borders develops a sweeping visual essay on global restrictive attitudes toward migrating populations. Guided by the filmmaker’s curious eye and personal reflections, the film dissects the experience of asylum seekers in Cyprus. Through a series of vignettes, it poetically weaves themes of migration, tolerance, identity and belonging.” – Iva Radivojevic
