Screening—Kaunas

28 September 2019 - Kauno kultūros centras, Kaunas


On & For at Kaunas International Film Festival is delighted to screen the latest films of Beatrice Gibson, I Hope I am Loud When I’m Dead (UK, 2018, 20 min) and Two Sisters Who Are Not Sisters (UK, 2019, 23 min).

I Hope I am Loud When I'm Dead

Reframing our current political moment in intimate terms, Gibson's urgent snapshot of social calamities doubles as a document of practical resistance. Pauline Oliveros' music and the words of poets CAConrad and Eileen Myles imbue images of street riots and refugee migration with graceful complexity.

Two Sisters Who Are Not Sisters

Two sisters (who are not sisters), two pregnancies, a two-seater car, a beauty queen, a poodle. The election of a second fascist – this time in Brazil. A crime thriller without a crime, Two sisters unfolds like a dream.
