The Afterlife of Rosy Leavers by Angela Su tells of a digital space, the story of a person whose consciousness has been moved into it, and of an act of gender violence in this place. In Summer siesta: 6th hour counting from dawn, by Nguyen Hai Yen, mirrors serve as a tool to present a meditation on the relationship between technology and family. In Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (Teach Me How to Dougie) by D’Ette Nogle, viewers witness a lesson on a hip-hop dance called the Dougie. Deserto by Jacopo Miliani is structured like a song with a recurring refrain and reflects how language can communicate multiple, queer identities. Fannie Sosa’s I Need This in My Life introduces the technology of transmitting deep bass frequencies as a cultural technique and explores the healing powers of sound. Aversion to Activity / Eight of March by Marko Tirnanić comments on the denial of performance as a means of resistance to social and gender expectations.
