We’ve got some real beauties for you this time around. Split’s sound design is absolutely stunning, while Echo Space brings hand-drawn warmth to an interplanetary voyage. Tableraze brings style and electricity to a card game between friends(?), while Skybaby and Grey Skies are about as soothing as you get. Roughhouse and Homesick explore longer-form storytelling, and Attraction indulges in the alien perspectives of an insect’s sensory system. It’s a hodgepodge, to be sure, but one you won’t regret diving into.
As always, for more films, make sure to follow our channel on Vimeo.
