The film screens at the Bytowne Cinema in Ottawa until July 25th. Check listings for show times. Here’s the trailer.

After Horizons was an evening of short films presented by SAW Video in partnership with Cinema Politica featuring works by two SAW Video members: Pixie Cram’s premiere of her new short film ‘Pragmatopia,’ and Matthieu Hallé‘s film experiment ‘Apartment No. 2.’ Also joining them was Andrés Salas, whose film ‘We Might Have Been Heroes’ was produced through Cinema Politica’s recent commissioning program The Next 150: Documentary Futurism.
These varied works examined contemporary concerns through a dystopic lens, each navigating the terrain of a world on the other side of collapse. Here are a few clips from the discussion moderated by Zoë Mallett that followed the screenings at Knot project space on November 30, 2018.
