Edgeless Shapes

Dir: Various, 75 mins 

Cert: 15

The first of our animation programmes (see Natural Habitats for the second) concentrates on the more hypnotic side of the art with an assortment of playful, surreal, and sometimes slightly deranged animated treasures. Blurring the boundaries between high-end art and lo-fi comedy, Breakfast on the Grass is an homage to Estonian animator Priit Parn’s 1987 film of the same name, Carlo Vogele’s Una Furtiva Lagrima shows what you can achieve with a fish, some transparent wire, and an operatic recording by Enrico Caruso, and Leah Shore’s stream-of-consciousness documentary exploring the mind of Charles Manson is as impressive as it is unnerving. We’re also delighted to screen the UK premiere of Pinball, the latest short film by last year’s festival guest Suzan Pitt.

This programme will be repeated on Friday 29th, 16:00 – 17:30
