NEW SHORTS: Up to and Including Her Limits

This event has ended.

18:30 Wed 15 Jan 2020

Regent Street Cinema

Navigating societal constraints and internal upheaval, the female characters at the centre of these works contend with a loss of control and spiralling selfhoods.

Steffie Yee manifests the language lost between matrilineal generations through pencil and plasticine, alongside animator Flóra Anna Buda’s sensual, lucid imaginings of a braless queer future. Video artist Hannah Perry probes our culture’s relationship to death, mental health and the underlying weight of gender in an experimental elegy, whilst Krissy Mahan tires of the incessant gendering of underwear. Guest programmed by Jenna Roberts. 83’


This programme contains themes of sexual abuse and frank discussion of mental health.

    An intensely personal yet universal exploration of the experience of loss, marking the first time Perry has chosen to address the tragedy of the recent suicide of her best friend and artistic collaborator, Pete Morrow.

  • MY CRAZY BOXERS

    Krissy Mahan 9 mins (US, 2019)

    Suicidal - or just a working class butch dyke caught in the wrong underpants? Seems that the boxers were the bigger problem, according to my treatment team. Based on the director's actual meetings with hospital staff while in a psychiatric hospital system.
  • THE LOST SOUND

    Steffie Yee 2 mins (AU, 2018)

    Inspired by the poem On Ç by Hiromi Itō, a woman looks at the matrilineal inheritance of linguistic tones in her family, mourning the parts of language that become extinct through semantic evolution.

    Lasse Linder 19 mins (CH, 2019)

    Christian lives with his two cats Marmelade and Katjuscha. As he is yearning to become a father, he decides to fertilize his beloved cat Marmelade by an exquisite tomcat from abroad.
