The conjuring: Robert A.A. Lowe guides Ben Rivers and Ben Russell's meditative journey.

The rest of Crossroads is given over to shorts programs, assembled with characteristic creativity (Program 3 "is focused on abstract animation-graphic cinema, environmentalism, and crack pot exploration," according to Polta), with co-producing credits given to Cinema Arts at the Exploratorium and the San Francisco Dance Film Festival on selected nights. There will also be a "live cinema" program (with live experimental music), and works by notable locals, including recent Guardian GOLDIE award winners Malic Amalya and Paul Clipson. *
