Black Box Shorts 1: Space and Place

  • 80 mins

Confined, infinite, foreign, familiar, urban, barren. Cinematic.

 Please note this screening may include strobe effects. 

This eclectic selection of short experimental films demonstrates a range of innovative approaches to interior and exterior space, drawing on cinema’s unique ability to transform our perception of everyday surroundings. Genesis P-Orridge in boxing ring kitsch; an ode to London Bridge; a musical journey through African culture and an insight into the eccentric characters of the Scottish highlands... Take a journey around the world by train, plane, by car or even on horseback!

Please note this screening may include strobe effects.
