17h10: A Brief Inquiry, 2010 by Joshua Reiman
A Brief Inquiry is a film about the sublime and its use in our everyday vernacular. Since the world has already been discovered, an explorer goes off to find the only thing that is left, an emotion called “the sublime”. The film’s voiceover is rich in theory and hysterical commentary describing the overuse and misunderstanding of the word "sublime" while visually driven by an ongoing quest for an overwhelming natural experience.
17h30: Labor Move, 2016 by Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir
In Labor Move we see dockworkers performing specifically for the camera, based on movements they have become accustomed to over a long period of time. The same movements are repeated, they throw heavy boxes from one place to another with considerable coordination and skill.

Munnhola, obol ombra houp-là (a series of performances) by artist and poet Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir (b. 1987) is a collection of performances where sounds, poems, phonics, tones, letters, words and wordless scenes form together a surreal dream world of perception. In the work, the voice is explored as a unique medium and acts as a thread through a journey of symbols, letters and human connection to nature, language, technology, games and entertainment. Premiered at Sequences X: Time Has Come.

19h15: Interment (part) 2021 by Anna María Bogadóttir
Built for a sleek and secure future the iconic Bank of Industries, was erected in downtown Reykjavík in the 1960s. Fifty years later, we step inside the building and witness its geometrical and material dissolution before the backdrop of everyday life. Through a visual narrative of building materials returned to the earth, we face the interplay between humanity, machines, and the elements. It's an end of a building and the end of a bank. An interment of a building corpse at the end of the age of disposable building culture.
