2. "Bare" by Santana Issar / 12 min / India
Two friends reconnect at their childhood haunts in the heartlands. As the night lengthens, their conversations draw out how they have deviated from their dreams through the course of life.
3. "ABCD" by Roxlee / 6 min / Philippines
An experimental animation that is part socio-political commentary and surrealist whimsy, advocating for a new and personal take on the alphabet.
4. "Silent Night" by Liao Jiekai / 12 min / Singapore
An old female voice narrates memories of growing up in a Singapore that no longer exists, the passing of a generation and her acceptance of death; deep into the night, mechnical fans rotate to the rhythm of passing wind, a mourner accompanied by restless phantoms and a lonely moth perched upon the yellow funeral tent; together they welcome the silent light of daybreak.
About the Asian Film Focus
The Asian Film Focus promotes the creation and appreciation of independent films from the region. It is dedicated to the short film genre, cinema’s most democratic and expressive form. Each year, we work with the foremost film programmers in Asia to bring audiences exciting gems from different countries, with a different theme each time. Through screenings, panel discussions, and networking sessions, industry and audience members can come together to discuss trends and developments in film, and forge a community that celebrates the creative power of filmmaking.
