Fiky recommends you to watch these films during Festival Film Dokumenter (FFD) 2019:

Terrace of The Sea

Diana Keown Allan | 2009 | United States, Palestine Territory | 52 min | 15+

Terrace of the Sea makes use of the family’s picture album collected throughout three generations like a prism to reflect on memory, loss, and history. This film views their relationship to work, their physical environment, as well as their survival in that ‘temporary’ house.


An Avation Field 

Joana Pimenta | 2016 | United States, Brazil | 14 min | PG

The film discusses how an obscure city in the foothills of a mountain in Brazil, rendering how small and insignificant, compared to the force of nature, man’s efforts to construct a dwelling place is.


FFD 2019 - The Yellow Bank

The Yellow Bank

J.P. Sniadecki | 2010 | United States, China | 27 min | PG

To witness, to wait, and to cross. This film interprets reality to be bordered by mere dark and light. The lighter it is, the quicker the roles of subject or testimonies fade.


You can watch Fiky’s favourites in Sensory Ethnography: Eye witness exhibition, held at Kedai Kebun Forum on December 2nd-7th, 2019. However, this agenda will be off on December 3, 2019.
