Agouro

A harsh winter freezes the surface of a river, close to a house where two cousins live. Immersed in the cold wind that rises that day, the rudeness of their relationship grows, reaching its limit.

And What Is Summer Saying

Namdeo has learnt to live off the forest from his father. He stares at the treetops, searching for honey. The wind blows and afternoon descends on the small village by the jungle. Women of the village, whisper little secrets of their lost loves. Never seen, and only heard. A strange smoke emits from the ground, like a dream of a time gone by.

Dissect

As the police arrive to investigate the sudden death of a boy in his classroom, a teacher must reckon with his reputation in the eyes of his students and colleagues.

Edge of Alchemy

In Edge of Alchemy the silent-era actors Mary Pickford and Janet Gaynor are seamlessly appropriated from their early films of the 1920’s and cast into a surreal epic with an upending of the Frankenstein story and an undercurrent of hive collapse.
Comprised of over 6000 handmade collages, Edge of Alchemy is the third in a trilogy looking at the psychological terrain of women’s inner worlds.

Fauve

Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer.
