Description

Four engaging films about the search for human connection and the power of listening. This compilation program includes Echo, Four Holes, Dentures, and Blow!

Composition
Echo

Echo

For Allister, an amateur radio enthusiast in Northern Ireland, communication isn’t something he can take for granted. But the human need for contact and community finds its way, and Allister’s horizons steadily broaden. A layered and moving portrait.
Four Holes

Four Holes

A dryly humorous portrait of Pepe, whose project after his retirement is to build his own golf course. During the making of Four Holes, the equipment and circumstances are not exactly optimal. But that’s all part of the film.
Dentures

Dentures

A tragicomic short film in which an Indian family gather at a hotel for the 90th birthday of the paterfamilias, who has dementia—he barely recognizes his relatives and gets lost in a confusing search for his dentures.
Blow!

Blow!

Mar’s dream is to record the sound of whales “singing,” so she joins a research team studying these marine mammals. It’s only when the camera and microphone are underwater that we realize how noisy life is above sea level.
