NEW SHORTS: International: Space is the Place
Sun 8 Jan 18:30 Picturehouse Central
Space is physical, mental, concrete, abstract, corporeal, metaphysical, cinematic, digital. From the Scandinavian hinterlands to the public confessional of the internet, these eight diverse films explore the amorphous and evolving dimensions of space, the influence we have on the world around us and the way the our environments impact on us too.

BEYOND THE FOREST

When Tabitha returns “home” after a separation from her boyfriend, Stephen, what they've been missing becomes opaquely clear and who they're becoming makes it hard for them to see each other. Their disconnections are mirrored in the film’s approach to editing, its confusion of time and space, and a free-wheelin' clowder of cats.

IN THE DISTANCE

Flatform 8 mins
A town observed from the hill facing it is treated as an architectural model illuminated by the lights of a home interior. The sounds cancel the distance of the shot, amplifying the details of places and actions lit up by beams of light. Places and actions appear as miniatures and are animated by the turning on and off of the lights in the room. The sounds of a wind band shift and double. The aria of an opera, deprived of voice, reverberates in the subtracted lights and landscape.
