El – Susto, a film by Re’em Aharoni (2011, HDV, 24:43′ )

Fernando Derks Bustamante lost his older brother when he was 3 – an event after which he stopped talking. To heal him from the ‘susto’ (fright), he underwent a ritual that carried a promise for transformation. This film reveals the juxtaposition between accepted cultures to nowadays-denounced traditions.

Up North Right East Down South Left West, a film by Christophe Meierhans (2012, HD video, 20:40′)

Western expatriates comment on what they see from a terrace of the old city of Jerusalem. The commenting off-voices decipher the same images we are also seeing as spectators of this film about the production of differences and identity, about orientation and disorientation.
