Directed by: Filipa César, Louis Henderson

Portugal, Brasil, France, 2018, 35 min., English, Portuguese with English and Lithuanian subtitles

Sunstone has the structure of a collage made up of instances in history and geography that create a loose narrative, relying on the viewer’s capacity of extracting meaning from her own link-making. Sunstone intersects the history of lighthouse building with seemingly timeless laws of physics, being inserted into history through the ownership of the military. It proposes optics as a moving image and pushes it further, suggesting the moving image as an accessible archive owning the potential of narrating a different – yet still militarized – version of its application.

About directors:

Filipa César (1975, Portugal) was educated in art at the Arts Faculties in Porto and Lisbon, the Art Academy in Munich and obtained a Master's degree in Art in Context at the University of Arts in Berlin. César is an artist who is interested in the politics behind the moving image, so there are blurred boundaries between fiction, documentary and experimental film in her work. She lives and works in Berlin. In 2015, her short film Mined Soil had its world premiere at IFFR. Sunstone (2018), also world premiere at IFFR, is her first collaboration with Louis Henderson.

Louis Henderson (1983, United Kingdom) moved from Norwich to London in 2004 to study Film and Video at the London College of Communication. The focus in his work is to address and question our current global condition defined by racist capitalism and ever-present histories of the European colonial project. Since 2015 he has been collaborating with the curator, producer, writer and performer Olivier Marboeuf on a variety of projects including talks, exhibitions, screenings, workshops, a play, short films and the production of a feature film.

Directed by Edward Lawrenson

UK, Ireland, 2018, short documentary, 29 min., English w. Lithuanian subtitles

An architect and filmmaker from Europe visit a town in the remote highlands of Liberia, once a thriving mining community, now decaying and desolate: a concrete ruin in the West African bush. Exploring the town, these researchers discover through its buildings a story of the promise of prosperity and forgotten injustices. A film about architecture, about the remnants of colonialism, and the spiritual cost of industrial mining.


About the director:

Edward Lawrenson is a London-based filmmaker whose films have played at a number of festivals, including Sundance, BFI London Film Festival, True/False, Open City; and cinemas, including the Museum of the Moving Image in New York and London's ICA. His radio documentaries have played on BBC Radio 4. His 2015 documentary Abandoned Goods (co-directed with Pia Borg) won the Golden Leopard for Best International Short at the Locarno Film Festival and he was included in Filmmaker Magazine's prestigious '25 New Faces of Independent Film' list, in 2015. It featured in a major exhibition by the Wellcome Trust in London in October 2016.

About the architect:

Killian Doherty is a qualified architect who has practiced in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Rwanda. He runs the collaborative practice Architectural Field Office that has a particular interest in sites of conflict and the dissonance of modernity and development in Africa.
