Key works by some leading exponents of the technique explore the limits and possibilities of twin 16mm projection in this extra-special presentation. This is a unique opportunity to experience playful documentary, visceral landscape film and poetic, post-psychedelic image manipulations that transcend the conventions of traditional cinema – on the biggest screen at BFI Southbank.
We also look forward to welcoming filmmakers from the programme plus Simon Field (producer, Illuminations Films) for a round-table discussion.
