New Shorts Competition International: En Masse
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Imfura, Dir. Samuel Ishimwe, Rwanda, 36 min, Various African languages with English subtitles (if applicable)

A selection of shorts pulling back from the individual and intimate to explore shared experience and collective memory of people en masse. Whilst some, such as Iyabo Kwayana’s Practice taking in the aesthetic frenzy of martial arts training, find beauty in collective movement, in others the landscape is defined by the absence of people, lost to migration and genocide, such as Samuel Ishimwe’s hybrid documentary Imfura. 93 min
