2646 N Milwaukee Ave
min., 2016, India
In Bombay is a documentary portrait of a man, with ascetic
origins, who has been radically transformed by city life.
Fairbanks & Saul Kak
min., 2016, Mexico/USA
Modern Jungle is a portrait of globalization filtered through the
fever dream of a Mexican shaman, don Juan, who falls under the spell
of a pyramid-scheme-marketed nutritional supplement. Juan’s
neighbor Carmen lives simply, in harmony with the land her martyred
husband paid for with his life. This film documents their struggles
and encounters with outside forces: from capitalism and commodity
fetish, to the culture of cinema, and the directors of this film.
