Save with a LIFF 2022 Pass

This shorts programme will also be available to view on Leeds Film Player from 6 to 17 November.

In this striking selection of short documentaries, wide-ranging concerns find different expressions: from a whisper to a song, a scream to a prayer. We visit communities living at the mercy of floodgates in Louisiana then take an on-the-ground look at a heavy metal band’s environmental activism in China. Following a searing essay on class and identity from German artist Vika Kirchenbauer, a ghostly voice seeks justice from the Tunisian state in the animation, Blind Spot. And finally, we meet would-be priest Vitali in a bittersweet depiction of ‘true male friendship,’ where all may not be as it seems.
