A programme of short films from emerging filmmakers aged 16 - 25.

Thursday 15 February 2018 11:00

Total running time 80 mins

How would you describe modern life? For some, it is their relationship to technology that defines it. For others, the perpetual bombardment of information, sounds, lights and colours is the key to formulating a definition. The current political situation, the way we organise work and communicate with others are other important elements of the modern life puzzle. This selection of shorts explores what it means to live in the 21st century.
