Ben Russell and Ben Rivers, who co-directed last year’s superb meditative feature, ‘A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness’, will compete against each other in this year’s Tiger Shorts Awards at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
Russell’s evocatively entitled, ‘Greetings To The Ancestors’ explores apartheid’s impact on future hopes in the borderlands of Swaziland and South Africa.
Whilst Rivers examines his own possessions in ‘Things’ with the objectiveness of a third party.
The awards ceremony is on Jan 25 at the festival venue, LantarenVenster.
