Curated by Anna Manubens & Emilie Bujes
"It all starts with an impossibility, whether it be the origin of the film, or be it encountered during the process of making it, or merely portrayed. A physical or psychological constraint, a political restriction that the film not only mirrors, but potentially takes advantage of.
We Can't Go Home Again initiates with works whose circular structures serve as an introductory prologue, in which detour and convolution become means to wrestle with an elusive center. The program delves into films that reflect on political inhibition and the ways to address it in terms of construction and form. It takes a journey across works that dare putting cinematic grammar and discursive assertiveness at risk in their steps towards visual and political dissent.
Progressing towards more personal objects, the program slowly turns to a series of works in which the impossible and the threat of collapsing are closely connected to a foregrounded first person and its affects; losing battles, at times purely utopian, often extremely intimate and therefore inherently burdensome and sensitive. We Can Go Home Again thereby ends on a selection of works in which affective collapse – depression, melancolia, heartbreak... in sum, being blue – is mirrored in the defiguration of images and speech. Far from conveying helplessness, these cinematic choices demonstrate that being reluctant to assertion and admitting one's own frailty of inher coherence are yet other expressions of emancipation."

The list of films includes works made by artists such as (TBC): Beatrice Gibson, Dora Garcia, Jafar Panahi, Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Marie Voignier, John Smith, Alex Reynolds, Victor Iriarte, Nicholas Ray, Anne Charlotte Robertson, Derek Jarman, Joaquim Pinto.
