SWEDENBORG SHORT FILM PROGRAMME

8th JULY 2015 | 7PM

The opening of this year’s festival features screenings by award winning filmakers k by Chiara Ambrosio; Kate Davis & David Moore; Erica Eyres; Bartosz Kruhlik; and Toby Tatum; and Ezra Wube.

These selected films from editions of the festival (2010–13), illustrate the scope of the ‘Swedenborgian’ theme – from the symbolic imagination of Hisab (Ezra Wube, Ethiopia, 2011, 8m) to the Surrealist performance of The Cut (Kate Davis & David Moore, UK, 2010, 3m). Charon (Chiara Ambrosio, UK, 2009, 12m16s) presents a mythical vision of the underworld, whilst the documentaryTomorrow (Bartosz Kruhlik, Poland, 2008, 13m33) offers a wry portrait of everyday existentialism. Meanwhile, The Hand in the Plastic Bag’s (Erica Eyres, Canada, 2012, 9m36s) absurdist humour exposes the gap between appearance and reality, and The Subterraneans (Toby Tatum (UK, 2011, 4m37s) suggests a heightened consciousness of hidden worlds.

Tickets - 2 for 1 OFFER! £8.50; CONC £6.50.
