Rosalind Nashashibi shares an online presentation of her two-part film commissioned for the 2019 edition of the festival. Following a group of individuals coming together in preparation for an experimental journey into space, the film reflects on the importance of storytelling and love in the building and sustaining of community. At the start of making the film, Nashashibi consulted the I Ching, or Book of Changes, a Chinese classical text used for divination, and believed to have been written by Fu Xi (c. 2800 BCE).

---

The titles are quotes from the I Ching, Hexagram 61, Inner Truth. It was a good starting point for this work, and gave me the push to begin simply with a trip to the seaside. The hexagram came back to mind in the last four months.

A crane calling in the shade.

Its young answers it.

I have a good goblet.

I will share it with you.

The interpretation of these lines given by the commentary is that, in this case, a crane does not need to be seen in order for its young to know when it calls, and true friends do not need to hear rumours in order to know when it is time to appear with wine. I see Part One as a kind of promise or spell for a more shared life as a single parent.

Parts One and Two make up an ongoing film about softening boundaries between family and community, imagining what a non-nuclear family could be, alongside a sci-fi story about space travel via non-linear time. If we reached non-linearity, what would happen to communication and the way we relate to one another? We talk to each other about this quality of time, which could have a radical effect on our attitudes to finitude and possession in relationships. In Part Two the body comes into play. Once we pass light speed, we get confused, our blood boils, we fight, get sick, get lost. Algirdas brings us back together with a poem and Daina with a story.
