Director Anthony Banua-Simon in person. CANE FIRE examines the past and present of the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i, interweaving four generations of family history, numerous Hollywood productions, and troves of found footage to create a kaleidoscopic portrait of the forces that have cast Indigenous and working-class residents as extras in their own story.

Director Charlie Shackleton in person. Fragments of hundreds of films from around the world bring together an ensemble cast of actors with one thing in common: each is no longer alive. Together, they contend with a fragile existence lived solely through these traces of their work. THE AFTERLIGHT itself exists as a single 35mm film print. Further eroding every time it screens, the film is a living document of its life in circulation.
