Black Box Shorts: The Shape of Light

Part of the Black Box Strand


This programme of films from Belgium, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and the USA contemplates our connectedness to light, both natural and artificial. From the cosmic glow of the moon and stars to the permanent neon glare of our contemporary cities and personal electronic devices, the human body is guided and shaped by sources of illumination. In the works showcased here, we discover the story of light through science, myth, fantasy and the imaginary.
