Papercuts by Tamarisk Ray Glogauer

Papercuts is set in a papery world somewhere between the old and the new. Embla and Writer search through the detritus in an attempt to find answers, each other, and complete an unnamed commission. The script explores themes of love, loneliness, womanhood, religion, and what it means to write down our stories in a burning world.

Waiting for Lift-Off by Nomakhwezi Becker

Two sisters try to connect from across oceans. Using language, memory, song, and paper planes, the stories of their lives unfold. In their search for each other, they find different ways of taking flight, reaching, disappearing, and remembering.
