International Competition: I hear you, I see you, I speak of you
Institute of Contemporary Arts
November 2022
BABYBANGZ, Juliana Kasumu, 11 min.

A meaning is decipherable. Yet a meaning of purpose is indecipherable. Wrapped in yearning and adversity - siblings resort to rivalry, a family is obliged to seek refuge, a newlywed wobbles in predicament while a community forms bonds with one another. Caught in paradox, what remains is in dialogue.

From a New Orleans salon to a refugee camp in Kabul, this International Competition programme of short films speaks to familial bonds, ties to home, and the displacement of people across the globe. 

Curated by Qila Gil, these films are all in the running to win Best International Short at LSFF 2022.
