Thinking with Other Senses
Three films that imagine multisensory ways to relate to natural phenomena. Resisting visual narration and self-reflexivity as dominant modes of expression, each work invites us to experience and attend to the invisible sounds that reverberate through and around us – generating a chorus from moss, hand gestures and twilight.
Total running time 75min

Manuela de Laborde
- Germany-Mexico-Canada 2021. 22min
A layered and poetic attempt to reflect the perspective of the plant world. Developed over three years, the piece adopts the intentionality of moss by recognising different understandings of duration, rather than simply seeing through our eyes and pressing record.
- Mexico-France 2021. 30min
Different readings of the uncannily beautiful light of the desert at night lend a sense of mystery to this work. A world that we think of as empty and dark slowly reveals multitudinous layers of nocturnal life, supernatural stories and enigmatic sounds.

The Hand That Sings
Alex Reynolds, Alma Söderberg
- Spain-Belgium-Norway-Sweden 2021. 23min
Choreographed hand gestures, sung notes, and word games in Spanish and English mingle with the different textures of tree bark, match-light and a cityscape to perform a rich, non-hierarchical rehearsal.
