Flower of the Day is the title we have chosen for a series of online programs that will be devoted to this year’s edition theme, that is, secret gardens, but also spring –the one we couldn’t experience but aim to regain with this autumnal edition. Each episode of Flower of the Day will bring together a little bouquet of pieces by different filmmakers –films that approach flowers and the plant kingdom– introduced by an opening sequence filmed in selected locations of A Coruña.
A bouquet of rescued flowers: a moving collage by Julieta Aberbuj, the intricate “cathodic” (botanical and emotional) garden of Janie Geiser’s animated collage (made from forgotten negatives, ancient illustrations, and home recordings), and a disturbing found footage lm by Julie Murray.
