Shorts After The Flaherty
Discussion following the screening with Eduardo Williams and other filmmakers from this year's Flaherty Seminar
A selection of shorts by guest filmmakers from the Flaherty Seminar.
Following the Flaherty tradition, the contents of this program will not be announced until we are all together in attendance but will include a selection of short films by guest artists from the 2017 Flaherty Seminar, FUTURE REMAINS, programmed by Nuno Lisboa along with other surprise guest filmmakers from this year’s Seminar. Guests will be in attendance for a discussion following the screening!
The event will be followed by a reception with drinks in our backyard.
Films from 2017 Flaherty featured filmmakers Eduardo Williams, Laura Huertas Millán will screen along with a few select shorts from participants and fellows also attending the seminar.
Eduardo Williams (b. 1987, Argentina) studied at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires, before joining Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains in France. His first short films were set in his home country of Argentina but his more recent works, shot in various locations across the globe, have come to include the uncertainty of travelling and the spontaneous connections made in unfamiliar contexts as a central part of his filmmaking process. Williams’ shorts films Could See a Puma (2011) and That I’m Falling? (2013) premiered at Cinéfondation and Director’s Fortnight at Cannes Film Festival followed by Tôi quên rồi! which had it’s premiere at FID Marseille. Retrospectives of his short films are organized, among other places, at the Cinémathèque Française in Paris and at Valdivia International Film Festival in Chile. His first feature, The Human Surge (2016), won the Filmmakers of the Present prize at the 69th Locarno Film Festival and was later shown at Toronto International Film Festival – Wavelengths, New York Film Festival – Projections, Tate Cinema, Viennale and Mar Del Plata International Film Festival.
