Under Construction

Cert (15)*

In this experimental journey, the spectator is invited to fill the gaps and connect the dots. Films to Break Projectors, making its world premiere at Flatpack, is a wonderful tribute to celluloid. The one and only Douwe Dijkstra, winner of the Audience Award last year, comes back with his poetic and political Green Screen Gringo. We dig deeper, in the intriguing Colossal Cave, to discover an underground cave system that has inspired a video game. And talking of video games, David O’Reilly’s ambitious project Everything will premiere in the UK as a 10 minute film, with the interactive version playable throughout the weekend in our hub.
