One event on October 1, 2017 at 3:30pm

Stephanie Rochet’s AMOR is a love story about two Chileans separated by 13,000km. They use the world of technology and instantaneity to make their long distance relationship work.

In Alex Travers’ Sleep, Perchance to Dream, Ophelia loves a man driven mad. As she sleeps, an alternate landscape filled with desire, child’s play and revealing vignettes come to life.

Welcome by Allison Van Gaal is about a boy in a world that doesn’t accept difference. A complex mind searching for connection with people, patterns and community. Who needs to shift? him? Or us?
