Travel, light and music move through an outstanding programme of new experimental work.

Please note this screening contains strobe effects.

Heady, headspinning Hollywood glamour comes courtesy of Nicholas Provost's jaw-dropping movie homage Gravity. The decoratively damaged archive footage collated by Bill Morrison (Decasia, EIFF 2003) in WhobyWatercreates a poignant portrait of optimistic turn-of-the-century ocean travellers. Elsewhere, brace yourself for firing optic nerves, cute canaries, and trees coming at you really, really fast. A spellbinding visual adventure combining a variety of distinct styles.
