Where Were We? Documentary Shorts
4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020
In this year of disruption and isolation, we bring you accounts of unsettled identities, personal discovery and collective action. Colonial legacies entwine with turbulent presents in stories of disputed citizenship and secrets in state archives. Tales of resilience unfold when a prisoner revisits his cell; residents take to the streets; and a visitor from Burkina Faso goes to curious lengths to make friends in Switzerland. And we share joyful moments as a surfer with Asperger’s surmounts a unique challenge, and a caretaker celebrates his life’s work: an enormous scrap-metal gym. 7 shorts. (Multiple Languages with subtitles).
Part of Cinema Versa, LIFF 2020's selection dedicated to documentary, non-fiction and music film.
Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit leedsfilm.com for more information.
