LIFT co-presents Domestic Cinema Shorts Program
at the 2019 Images Festival
Co-presented in partnership with Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT), Breakthroughs Film Festivals, Call Again and the South Asian Visual Arts Centre (SAVAC)
The ongoing discourse of Domestic Cinema springs from Gabi Dao’s film “The Protagonists.” Examining the relationships that can be created through moving digital images and incorporated sound produced in close proximity to our homes, Domestic Cinema counters the dramatization of the home as a site of nostalgia and psychoanalysis, in the lives of marginalized or diasporic demographics. Instead, this program presents the domestic as a playground for identities to flourish, blush, retreat, or trumpet.
