Directed by Ian Harnarine
USA, Trinidad and Tobago / 7 minutes / 2018 / English
In New York City, Rajni is a homesick nanny to an upper-middle-class family. She keeps in touch with her own daughter, Mosaic, back in Trinidad by video-chatting with her. When Mosaic realizes that her mother will not be there for her birthday party, Rajni obsesses over how she can join her.

La Ruta
Directed by Natalia Lassalle-Morillo
Puerto Rico / 30 minutes / 2018 / Spanish
La Ruta is an immersive, experimental work that documents the now abandoned recreational infrastructure,  uncontrolled natural landscapes and off-road sites of Puerto Rico’s Panoramic Route. Built in 1974 as the government’s alternative to bring tourism and progress to the central-mountain range of the island, the route is known for its poor road infrastructure and disconnection from the more densely populated metropolitan areas. This has resulted in a loss of the historical sites on the route.

Fever Dream

Jamaica / 13 minutes / 2017 / English
Plagued by dreams of a beautiful life once lived or yet to come, a scrap metal collector living on the edge of a landfill travels out of town for a job which promises to provide a spark of hope.

Fucked Like a Star
Directed by Stefani Saintonge
Haiti, USA / 8 minutes / 2018 / English
A meditation on the dream-life of ants, women, and fucking, set to the words of Toni Morrison.

Fucked Like a Star director Stefani Saintonge and producer Züri Obi-Louis will be in attendance for a Q&A.
