Kindling by Lili Robinson
Starring Lissa Neptuno.
Directed by Angelica Schwartz
Kindling is about Mara, a queer mother, living through the end of the world, fighting addiction in the wake of global collapse and the death of the love of her life. Inspired by Octavia Butler’s “Parables” novels and their motifs of rebirth through fire, Kindling asks what recovery can mean for a society set on watching things burn.

Thin Ice is a disturbing voyage across the frozen surface of a lake that provokes memories of times too hot and cold, unearths fossils and ghosts, and conjures future memories of the places we love. What will climate change look like in our most precious places, and what dreams does the future hold?
