Friday December 7 at

8pm – Shadows, Circles & Fire
Forward, backward, repetition, circles and spirals: these films move in their own particular ways through space and time, emphasizing the transitory and the fleeting.

9pm – Laughing, Wondering & Meditating
Young men posing amid traffic in the Chinese city of Guangzhou; a fictional factory that produces canned laughter for sitcoms; a rickety elevator in a building where odd things happen.
