Black Hole Mama is a personal black-and-white documentary tracing out details in a neighborhood facing a massive change. People miss their community and are afraid of losing it forever. At the same time, they reflect on life as a whole and their own purpose within. Gradually, their memories and stories are woven into a tapestry where the convivial everyday life intertwines with darker tones. In the end, one just needs to decide what to bring along and what to leave behind.
Fausto – Dir. Andrea Bussman
Set on the Oaxacan coast, Andrea Bussman's latest feature is one part mediation on myth and one part avant-garde ghost story. The film's narrator encounters a number of people, all of them storytellers, who describe a past that refuses to go away. Ghosts and witches abound and almost every location has a secret history. The stories — populated by thieves, grifters, and unwary people who indulge in esoteric affairs — frequently include a handsome man who seduces almost everyone into making deals that invariably end in disappointment. He's an emblem for our own incurable addiction to narrative and the meaning we want to impose on what we experience.
