Panel—COVID-19 and Navigating its Demands of Change
In this bold new experimental documentary, four artists talk about suicide: the role the recurring thought has played in their life and art, the struggle to understand and overcome the impulse, and the ongoing confrontation with a form of stigma that renders the very concept of suicide as a kind of pariah. With a frankness that is both bracing and illuminating, Steve Sanguedolce’s four subjects in LAND OF NOT KNOWING tell stories about considering suicide and the filmmaker responds with a striking visual scheme that presents something rarely attempted in the engagement with this most misunderstood of conditions: a sense of first person understanding. – Geoff Pevere

Panel—Building A Dementia-Inclusive Society
Odette is 8 years old, she likes to paint and laugh. Of course, she trusts adults, why would she be afraid of her parent’s friend? Why would she refuse to play “little tickles” with him?

A very promising dancer, but still broken by her lost childhood. Finding the perfect balance between her life and her dances, the horror and the comedy, Odette leads us through her story with her laugh, her supreme elegance and sublime protection. She will fight for her moral reconstruction, reconciliation and, above all, resilience.
