Short Film Program

SummerStage: Caribou / Ela Minus / Toribio + Shorts

SummerStage is back in 2022! Live performances from Caribou, Ela Minus, and Toribio — preceded by Gerhard Funk’s A Goat’s Spell and Jonatan Schwenk’s Zoon, two short films programmed by Rooftop.


Thu Jul 28 6:00 PM

Dan Snaith has been making music under the Caribou moniker since 2004 and left his mark at SummerStage in 2015 performing to a full capacity crowd; his 2010 breakout Swim remains a classic in the sample-heavy sphere of electronic music. Those early records were loose and, at times, chaotic; in recent years his music sounds more streamlined, if no less compelling. His latest album, 2020’s Suddenly, brings a clarity of focus to Snaith’s vision, a gentle, emotive suite of compositions that doesn’t waste a single note. He’s joined by the Colombian-American artist Ela Minus, who got her start drumming in punk bands before finding herself in a suitcase full of drum machines and synthesizers, with a sound that takes left turns from bubblegum to goth and everywhere in between. They are joined by DJ, producer, and band leader of Conclave, Toribio, on the decks.

The Films

A Goat's Spell

Gerhard Funk | Germany | 9

A child and their day. A conquest before breakfast. A clueless goat outside the house. A couple of promising airplanes up high in the sky. Then everything starts falling to pieces. The goat seems to be the link, if anything is linked at all.


Jonatan Schwenk | Germany | 4

In the dark swamps of a nocturnal forest, a group of gleaming axolotls is in heat, nuzzling and nibbling one another’s limbs. Soon a much larger, two-legged forest-dweller encounters the lustful group and reaches down to gobble one of the small shimmering creatures. His plump friends begin to partake as well and a feast begins.
