Sunday August 21st - MUSICAL SHORTS
THE MIGRANTS, 5min., Canada, Music Video
Directed by Louise Marie Beauchamp
Poetic fresco shot in the cold of Canada that expresses the difficulty for a migrant to tame a foreign territory. On J.-S. Bach's Adagio in D minor, which he brilliantly interprets on the piano, the Guatemalan indigenous artist and farmer Salvador Chavajay tells us with simplicity and clairvoyance the recent forced exodus of workers from his country and offers his definition of the term’s poverty, wealth and conscience.
THE OPENINGS, 6min., Cyprus, Musical
Directed by Nima B. Djavidani
We, like two openings facing
aware of any of each other’s ramblings.
Everyday, salutation, amenities and laughter,
everyday, a tryst for tomorrow,
life, a mirror of heaven, but…alas
shorter than the night and days of June and December
now my heart is broken and tired,
because one of the openings is shut.
Neither the sun did sorcery nor the moon magic,
Curse be upon the journey, he did it all – everything that happened.

THIS WORLD IS YOURS, 5min., USA, Music Video

Barukh Ate...a yiddish song with lyrics witnessing a father clinging to tradition in the light of thecandles, remembering the fight of the Maccabees. Mostly Kosher’s response: this war is yours now, to every listener that hears this song: Fight for justice, love so bloodless, from this hour more. May we have peace in this world.
IDKN, 3min,. USA, Music
Directed by Deanna G Williams
After a player reneges at the spades table, the host and her crew have to take him outside to have a few words. Upon hearing a misinterpreted request for a weapon, one of the host’s crew members pulls out a gun to everyone’s surprise, including the host. The song begins, and it is a fun and truthful introspective look at the many ways that I don’t know anything about a gun.
