Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses


Saturday 21st April, 2018

The Mockingbird | 13:30 - 15:10

A real cabinet of curiosities, this programme gives pride of place to handmade creations and the inventors behind them.

Anna Vasof’s overflowing imagination is at work in When Time Moves Faster. The artist, who designs ingenious contraptions, will be attending Flatpack this year, as will Johan Rijpma, who takes plate smashing to a whole new level in the mesmerizing Elastic Recurrence. Jessica Ashman uses her craft to convey an important political message in I Don’t Protest, I Just Dance in My Shadow, and in the electrifying Tesla Matthew Rankin reveals a little-known episode of the famous inventor’s life, involving a feathered friend.
