This Year's Theme​: What is Truth?

The theme for EuroAsia Shorts 2017 is Truth. We might wish the truth were always simple, but in reality it rarely is. Each of us must reconcile our public persona with our true self in private. How true are we with others in our daily lives? Does censorship foster truth, or hinder it? And when we fail to live up to the truth—through infidelity, lies, or being untrue to our own self—what do we do? The truth can vary from person to person, let alone one culture to another, and yet we all struggle with it. Wherever it leads, we seek it.


About the Festival

Now in its twelfth year, EAS began as the Asian European Short Film Showcase and remains an original collaboration between a small group of Washington, D.C. embassies and cultural center staff. The festival has presented more than 200 short films since it began in 2006, including many award-winning shorts making their U.S. debut. Each year presents a broad variety of films and styles connected by a single theme, with post-film discussions each night, offering an international cinematic dialogue that is uniquely Washingtonian.

While Rocio is pent up in an immigration detention center in Rome, she gets pregnant. She doesn't want to tell who did it or how it happened.

Homework

Little Llena spends the entire day patiently preparing and waiting for her father to come home. When nighttime comes, she eagerly meets her father only to find someone else lurking at their doorstep.

Duellum

Spain, 2015, 10 min - Director: Tucker Dávila Wood
The knight's quest is always lurking, pulling at the very core. In equal parts primal and noble, the call to battle must always be heeded, and one must be ready to answer, on any given day, in any given place.


Strangers On A Mountain ( 등산남녀 )

Korea, 2017, 9 min - Director: Donggil Ryu
Two strangers meet on a mountain, but they have come for very different personal reasons. When we give up trying to preserve our individual privacy, and instead agree to share it with another, wonderful things can happen.

Alain

Italy, 2016, 15 min - Director: Daniele Pace
One last and long summer day. Sarah has been informed that the police are on her trail. There is no time, she must flee. But something still ties her to this city, this chaotic and indifferent Rome. She cannot leave without locating the only person who really is important to her and may save her. Sarah retraces the places from her past and of her possible condemnation, coming to understand a bitter truth.


Blind Spot

France, 2007, 3 min - Directors: Johanna Bessière, Nicolas Chauvelot, Olivier Clert, Cécile Dubois-Herry, Yvon Jardel, Simon Rouby
A robber enters a convenience store with the intention of holding it up. In the store, a little old lady with poor eyesight struggles to do her shopping. Suddenly, everything erupts into confusion. An angle mort, or blind spot, in the store's camera results in a perfect set up, an unforgiving mix up. Blind Spot is a lesson in film editing, an ideal plot twist film, and a true gem of animation.

Recruit Rhapsody

Japan, 2012, 7 min - Director: Maho Yoshida
The lead character has spent her time as an ordinary university student. But one day she notices something odd in her friends' attitudes. They told her that they've taken desperate measures to get a job. She's gradually dragged into "The Japanese SHU-KATSU (job hunting)" without recognizing it for what it is.
