Dutch shorts at Ann Arbor FF

The 59th edition of the Ann Arbor Film Festival (Michigan), the oldest avant-garde and experimental film festival in North America, is taking place March 23-28. Six days of online festival that are filled to the brim with experimental films, special programs, film maker talks, online workshops and much more.

Two Dutch short films have been selected for the international competition; Cloud Forest*) (2019) by Eliane Esther Bots and The Last Name of John Cage (2020) by Margaux Guillemard.

Cloud Forest, produced by The Hague based production company Near/by Film had it's international premier at the Uppsala International Short Film Festival and has been succesful at international festivals ever since. Cloud Forest is a fairytale-like film in which five Dutch girls take us on a journey through memories of their parents' experiences of the war in former Yugoslavia, a war which the girls haven't physically experienced themselves.

The Last Name of John Cage has its North American premiere in Ann Arbor. With only 4 minutes and 33 seconds, how much can one imagine and feel? How many times can one gain and lose trust? The Last Name of John Cage is a calm dialogue between a loud inner tension and the silent one that surrounds.

*)This film is supported by the Netherlands Film Fund
