Fiona Tan: Footsteps

In this video installation drawn exclusively from films made between 1896 and the late 1920s, Tan pairs mesmerizing moments of people working over a century ago—sewing fishing nets, harvesting wheat, collecting chicken eggs, sorting oysters—with missives from her Australia-based father, read aloud by Scottish actor Ian Henderson.


Opening Night

The opening night selection of First Look 2024 is Astrid Rondero and Fernanda Valadez's follow-up to Identifying Features, a major work by two of the finest young filmmakers of their generation, in which a young man, orphaned by the Mexican drug cartels, grows up in the shadow of violence.

Self-Portrait: 47 KM 2020

Over the past thirteen years, Zhang has documented her father’s village in Hubei, China, as a repository of ancestral memory; for the tenth of these films, Zhang installed herself permanently in the village upon the outbreak of COVID-19. The result is an immense accomplishment, vividly depicting a year in the life of a stoic rural community, far removed from an urban-centered pandemic.


Showcase Screening

This rapturous, dazzlingly unconventional debut feature dives deep into the life, mind, and spirit of a twentysomething Dominican American woman finding her footing in South Brooklyn and dealing with a disrupted love affair with a Ukrainian boy who goes back to his home country at the outbreak of war.

Flying Lessons

The magnetic pull between artist and filmmaker yields something beguiling and precious, celebrating the fiery Philly even as she and the world she fought to protect are being actively extinguished.
