Blazing Sun Independent Film Festival

If you attended our Blazing Sun Film Festival screenings of award-winning film shorts, March 4-5, at Rio 7 Cinema-Kingsville, let us know which film or films moved you. In your view, which films had poetic moments. (A poetic moment is a moment in the film that illuminates and touches our heart about a character or something in the story that is moving.  The moment in the film may be a look, a kiss, a quirky smile, an emerging plant in the aftermath of a fire, or something in frame seemingly small but is gigantic in meaning to the story. In short, it is poetic. 

If any of these films, listed below, moved you and, in your view, had a poetic moment, briefly identify the moment in the scene in the comment section below the description of the film:

A Rent in the Veil: 

A Rent in the Veil (Narrative, TRT 16:09)– USA – Director: Andrew Beckham, marks his debut in filmmaking – is a meditation on the elasticity of time, the mystery of an unfolding cosmos, and the endurance of wonder. From the mesmerizing drift of millennia found in Herzog’s caves, to the slow-motion transformations witnessed in Viola’s video art, A Rent in the Veil references an aesthetic that is more about contemplative introspection than any particular formal trope.

Andrew Beckham is an artist and author, with books published by Princeton Architectural Press and GET Books. Mr. Beckham’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the Denver Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, InFocus Foundation, Portland Art Museum, Joslyn Art Museum, MacArthur Foundation, and the Fralin Art Museum at UVA, among others. A Fulbright Fellow in Jerusalem at the turn of the millennium, Mr. Beckham found his voice through a nexus of concerns that included ecumenical solidarity, ecology and cosmology.
