SHORTS IN COMPETITION: DOCUMENTARY

DEPART

Directed by Blake Williams
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 10 Minutes US Premiere
FILM GUIDE DEPART
A mini-essay on motion, image tracking and mapping in an explicitly digital form, Depart moves through various modes of software and internet aesthetics to frame images of sublime landscapes and flying vehicles. Set to a score of air traffic control radios, transportation ambience and ominous drones, the accumulating layers of found, manufactured and self-shot footage—plus a swarm of digitally animated fireflies—ease into an ambivalent co-existence.

Screening in Shorts Program: Let There Be Light: The Cycle of Life
Documentary, Animation, Science Fiction
