Fever Dream
Directed by Francine Daveta, Brooklyn, NY, 36:49, World Premiere

While isolated in her New York City home, a burlesque dancer receives a mysterious package. A series of sublime, sensual and surreal messages send her into a feverish night which could only be a dream, or perhaps, a waking nightmare.


THE BLIND SEER OF CONEY ISLAND
Directed by vagabond, NY, 40:04, World Premiere

Dune, a mysterious old man who wanders around Coney Island has found that he is quantumly entangled with a group of Voodoo spirits also known as Loa. Papa Legba, the Loa who acts as an intermediary between worlds, believes the time of the Loa is coming to an end and tries to convince his friend, Baron Saturday, who is the Loa of the afterlife. When Ayizan, the Loa of the marketplace and wife of Papa Legba hears about it she scoffs at the idea. Using philosophy and physics Dune settles the matter for them once and for all but does so spookily at a distance, from across time and space.
