New ShortsDocumentary

DOCUMENTARY: The Measure of a Moment

This event has ended.

19:00 Tue 14 Jan 2020

ICA Cinema 1

To help combat the constant tug of productivity anxiety, these shorts present quietude and the joy of play.

Awash with childish reveries, conversations with grandparents and time spent in the great outdoors, this programme is a tonic for the uneasy speed of life. Mostly observational, sometimes essayistic, these documentaries present paths that deviate from aspiration, accumulation and the constant push forward. Programmed by Miranda Mungai. 82’

This programme contains references to domestic abuse.
