Expanding the possibilities of visual representation, various forms of filmmaking converge and coalesce to articulate our relationship with architecture, nature, images, current events, and our subconscious. The program harkens back to early memories of a meaningful triumph, revisits the burning of a historical building in a new way, and sparks an excitement to discover the healing that can be found in the natural world. Elsewhere, individuals recall their nightmares after the onset of a recent war, while another revisits their relationship to their craft. Finally, the story of an ex-CEO serves as a reminder of the fickle nature of capitalism. (KM)
