PET WORLD

“That looks like a happy fish.”

A parking lot by the airport where people sit in their cars, eat takeout, and watch the planes land. A parking lot outside a mega pet store. Inspired by Amy Hempel’s short story collection, Reasons to Live, and the work of poet Bernadette Mayer. An ensemble cast riffs on what we might discover about intimacy in parking lots.







EASY GO

Depression, fetish and friendship. A shapeshifting portrait of healing bodies & eroding landscape.

MAGIC BATH

"Grace Mitchell's video is the most overtly diaristic and it does little to hold the viewer's hand. Magic Bath is an experiment in pure montage. Mitchell is working through footage she has gathered over a decade on various cameras, during various projects started and stopped, containing staged gestures and fleeting private moments. There are echoes of Jonas Mekas' early diary films in this collage. And though what might grip one most on a first viewing is the pleasure of various textures, sounds, and edits, there is a recurring theme of the body as it attempts to orient itself." --Ben Balcom
