A Spot to ‘Chill Out’ While Waiting for the Door to Open

The 2011 debut session of Sinema Retrospective! featured the works of Fran Borgia, a familiar 'foreign talent' whose name we have often seen appearing on the credits of local films as director, assistant director and producer.

True to the retrospective format the curatorial team selected six short films where Fran had ‘a hand’ as director, assistant director and producer over a span of six years (2004 - 2010).
