The Short List: DIS

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
2022 / 105min / DCP

Metrograph and DIS present The Short List, a collection of short films and TV episodes from the 2021 Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement in Geneva, curated by DIS and Andrea Bellini, which imagine worlds that differ from the one we live in today. Byron & Shelley: Illuminati Detectives (Leah Hennessey & Emily Allan, 35 minutes) Romantic poets Lord Byron and Percy Shelley are imagined as sex-crazed, drug-addled undercover agents of a secret society. Everything But The World (DIS, 37 minutes) A TV pilot for a multi-genre docu-sci-fi series, which departs from the premise of a nature show by turning the camera onto nature’s least natural invention: us. Penumbra (Hannah Black, Juliana Huxtable & And Or Forever, 33 minutes) An animal, representing all animals, on trial for crimes including “being disgusting,” in a dream-like confrontation between being and the law. Co-presented with DIS and Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève
