Short Film Program: (un)ease your feelings

Friday 4.11.2016, 20:15 – 21:20

This program of short films questions the fundament of human emotions when they are experienced through psychological and physical hardships or under extreme circumstances.

How do we relate to unpleasant or challenging emotions when they rise up?

On one hand, everybody strives for happiness, but what if the path towards it involves our darkest feelings? Most of us try to avoid the unpleasantness of anger or sadness, but what happens when all forms of escapism are no longer satisfactory?

Can faking our own death help with depression? Can we remain in touch with our humanity when everything that constitutes it has been taken away from us?

(un)ease your feelings raises the question: how do we relate to our emotions and feelings when they get the better of us?
