Allan Baldwin: In Frame  

Tearepa Kahi

2011 | 52 minutes | New Zealand

U.S. Premiere | Director in Attendance

This loving examination of the photographer-turned-historian Allan Baldwin’s extraordinary work on traditional Maori tattoos is part historical document, part tribute to some of the last practitioners of a dying traditional art form. Baldwin’s magnificent photographs from the ‘60s and ‘70s, which inspired Michael King’s famous 1972 book Moko: Maori Tattooing in the 20th Century, are the product of a chance encounter on Baldwin’s adoptive home of the central North Island of New Zealand. Coming upon a Maori female elder with a moko, which he had believed were all gone, he asked if he could take her picture. That episode, like the many that followed it, combined to make up an extraordinary pictorial record that is also a testament to Baldwin’s character.

Irish Folk Furniture

Tony Donoghue

2012 | 9 minutes | Ireland

Traditional farmhouse furniture in Ireland has its own culture and social history; old hand-painted pieces are often associated with hard times and poverty. This charming and beautifully composed stop-motion animated short lightens the weight of this history, following 16 pieces of what in many places would be considered folk art through repair, restoration, and their return home.
