Adventures Close to Home
Place, memory and the physicality of experiences are explored through the complex web of the interpersonal relationships that gather around us.
Moving between visceral and ethereal, this collection of shorts radiates a sense of melancholy whilst engaging with tangible, powerful issues. They offer us a peephole into stories recounting the hazy memories of lost loved ones, hallucinatory road trips, the yearning for belonging and dreams of impossible romance.

#1 / Monday 6 June, 2011 / 16:59 GMTVery good films here. I've seen two of them and half of another.
( Had to leave halfway through. ) ' The Patient ' had a good script I thought and was produced with good values. But the one that grabbed me was ' Join the Dots '. A little clunky here and there story-telling-wise but shot with great imagination and containing a beautiful, subtle and brave performance from the actress. Someone for the future perhaps.
