Black Box Shorts 1: In the Body of Technology

  • 74 mins

Bodies transformed and reimagined through technologies of reproduction.

This short experimental film programme reflects on the way technology dialogues with the body, creating a two-way process of transformation. Gestures and movements are broken down and analysed, destabilised and defamiliarised. The physicality of the body meets the material of film and digital, migrating through forms and layers and creating new perceptions and experiences. The screening ends with a live performative intervention that connects the filmmaker, the audience, the filmstrip and the projected image. [PG]
