It’s more than a lyric in a Dave Matthews song – it’s the name of a short film program line-up! More importantly, it defines the emotional rhythms and themes reverberating through these films; each featuring mysterious forces that attract and repel us, sometimes affecting disparate beings in the most unlikely ways. – Faroukh Virani
