FROM NINE TO NINE
dir. Neil Bahadur, 2016.
67 mins. Canada.

There is a dead body sitting outside of a library which an unnamed young man is arrested for.  He escapes, and wanders an unnamed city – spaces take on different meanings in handcuffs.  Featuring clips from THE AQUARIUM AND THE NATION, THE SHOOTING, MAHJONG, REGENERATION, TOO EARLY TOO LATE and INTOLERANCE.

Neil Bahadur was born on Feburary 24, 1991.

THE WORDS ARE NOT WHAT YOU MEANT
dir. Jiayi Chen, 2017.
12 mins. United States.

A stranger’s quest in Chicago, particularly Chinatown, for a sense of being in an uncertain time. It derives from experiences of translation and transportation, negotiations with foreignness and intimacy, and attempts to physically and emotionally inhabit a place.
CASE STUDY OF AN EQUATION
dir. Jiayi Chen, 2017.

4 mins. United States. Originally shot on Super-8mm.

Based on a mathematical equation, the work CASE STUDY OF AN EQUATION is made to ridicule the process of coping with fear, to quantify emotion in space and in relation to others. It is the full length of a 50 foot reel of super 8 film with in-camera editing, and is the result of an immediate investigation and spontaneous measurement of the haunting ghost from a past incident.

Jiayi Chen is an artist born in Chongqing, China, and is currently based in Chicago, IL. She works in film, video, installation and photography. She is interested in language, instructions and correspondence, exploring them in her works and also living with them.

ONE SECOND PER SECOND
dir. Jesse Filian, 2016.
9 mins. United States.
“A chronicle of some time spent with my uncle talking about his years working in factories and riding horses around Northeast Illinois with my grandfather. An attempt to reconcile the landscape they grew up on with the one I now inhabit.”
Jesse Filian is a filmmaker from Illinois.
