Total runtime 70min

A compendium of speculative futures, dream logics and waking nightmares. These films layer fantasy over reality, from the tricksy megachurches of Lagos, to the otherworlds of Somerset’s Wookey Hole Caves, alongside animation transporting us into the theme-park from hell. The programme features new work from Ben Rivers (Two Years At Sea) and Akinola Davies, and an animated performance from Emmy The Great.
