Blink and You’ll Miss Us is an original series of 21 microfilm poems by Afghan and Canadian filmmakers, featuring poems by Aria Aber. Filmed in Kabul and Toronto from 1 to 15 October, 2020 Each stanza of Aber’s poems (as well as the previous micro-film in the sequence) were revealed to each filmmaker one at a time, back and forth. To encourage a spontaneous and visceral response to the material, filmmakers Shahrbanoo Sadat and Baqir Tawakoli were only given 18 hours to create their next film in response. These films are both an international conversation and a unique artistic collaboration.
