Unstable Matters / Lisa Kaschubat / 2021 / Germany / 8’20

THE NIGHT MANIFESTO / Arthur Lacomblez / 2021 / France / 7’51
The Night Manifesto is a 4-part experimental short film exploring the intimate significance of partying. It draws the portrait of a community, who wonders on Monday what they’ll do on Friday. It’s a celebration of rave culture and nightlife – it’s an ode to all those whose only mean of survival is to dance through the night, their eyes closed in the ecstasy that techno music provides.

Contraindre / fleuryfontaine (Galdric Fleury, Antoine Fontaine) / 2020 / France / 11′
