All The Things

Shot exclusively on her smart phone, Coral Short delivers a winters’ worth of New York imagery interlaced with prose. This raw and honest film narrates Coral’s 17 year relationship with New York, combining her long term love affair with this specific geographical location with her passionate romances. The story starts off in the squats in Alphabet City and ends up in Flatbush Brooklyn.


Coral Short was born on a beautiful island off the west coast of Canada and was raised by a lively river in the countryside where her eccentric family lived off the land. She spends a fair amount of time dispersing her magic around the globe – in the air, on railroad tracks and highways all the while curating and doing artist residencies. Coral has lived and created art in Asia, North America, and Europe for the last 15 years. She has many beloved people, communities, and locations that she calls home. Short and her countless projects move at the speed of light; ironically she is the most still when she travels.

Coral Short est une artiste prolifique en performance, son et vidéo. Humour, fantaisie et transformation sont des composantes intégrales de sa pratique. Son travail comble le fossé entre le nightlife et les beaux-arts, en mobilisant l’imaginaire collectif de ces communautésENTITÉS?. Son travail contribue à cartographier le pouvoir et l’identité de la nouvelle génération queer. Elle réside actuellement à Montréal et New York.
