Italians at Home (1990) Ettore Siracusa (Australia) 30 mins. Two men sit in a darkened room watching slides of houses and portraits of Italian immigrants. They are researching a photo book entitled Italians at Home. This fictional text is the means of exploring notions about cultural identity, nostalgia and biography, looking and desire.
Human Remains (1998) Jay Rosenblatt (Denmark) 30 mins. Human Remains confronts the nature of evil by creating intimate portraits of five of this century’s most reviled dictators – Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Franco and Mao. This darkly poetic film is based entirely on fact, combining direct quotes and biographical information.
Le Temps Perdu (1964) Michel Brault (France/Canada) 27 mins. Filmed at a summer cottage outside Montreal, Le Temps Perdu composes candid observations of a group of French Canadian adolescents whose behaviour and conversation reflect their charm and awareness of poignancy.
(Total running time 87 mins)
