SP 08 Transitions - Experimental Shorts

The modern experimental film combines old and new techniques. It plays with sound, music, movement, editing and alteration. Many of the films draw us into a maelstrom of surprising, disturbing and frequently fascinating imagery. The films in this programme deal with themes such as time, space, the body, cities, nature, fears, dreams - and the human.
