ABOUT THE FILMS:
Wrought (2023) directed by Anna Sigrithur and Joel Penner:
A visual exploration of decay begs questions about our relationships with other species.
Wrought begins with that universal moment of disappointment: despite all best efforts, our food has gone bad. But instead of turning away in disgust, Wrought zooms in with curiosity.
Wrought explores how we construct categories, examining those of spoil, ferment, compost and rot. It coaxes audiences to decompose the binary of human and non-human. We are all, indeed, wrought.—DCEFF
The Botanist (2021) produced and directed by Maude Plante Husaruk and Maxime Lacoste-Lebuis:
After the fall of the Soviet Union, Tajikistan, a former Soviet Socialist Republic, plunged into a devastating civil war. A famine struck the mountainous region of the Pamir where Raïmberdi, a passionate and ingenious botanist, built his own hydroelectric station to help his family survive through the crisis.—DCEFF
