"Experimental film tends to find meaning in the senseless, structure in the void. 2020 seems to call for it acutely. Screening as part of our Experimental Shorts program, ‘The Past is a Foreign Country’ reveals an archive of melancholic nostalgia through scratchy Super 8 footage of Mexico and Louisiana. Filmmaker Gabrielle Garcia Steib mixes this with family footage from Nicaragua, evoking a tiny portal into a subjective history – one which may recall flashes of our own. In doing so she demonstrates the power of film to conjure collective memory and longing."
