NEW SHORTS: Hiding In Plain Sight

21:00 Wed 16 Jan 2019

Regent Street Cinema

These films look to visibility and resilience, to those refuting and those resigned to their obscurity and the ‘margins’ of an unhomely world. Wrestling back their senses of self from society, these characters confront the difficulties of immigration, both past and present, the invisibility of aging and the internal conflict of body image. Watch out for Neil Maskell (Kill List) and Naomi Ackie (Lady Macbeth, Yardie). 98’
