Legacies features five short artist films for cinema commissioned by CIRCUIT Artist Moving Image and curated by Thai/UK curator and film scholar Dr May Adadol Ingawanij. The project developed from a series of propositions put to the artists by CIRCUIT curator-at-large Ingawanij about the potential meaning and resonance of the term ‘legacies.’

The artist’s personal responses are varied: portrait of a young Pasifika matriarch (Edith Amituanai); a reflection on the cinematic history of Thailand (Ukrit Sa-nguanhai); an artist sculpting clay in their studio (Martin Sagadin); an animation based on a Balinese painting made by the artists grandfather (Sriwhana Spong), and a vivid interpretation of Samoan funeral chants and speeches (Pati Tyrell).
