This is Now: Entering the Dream Space

  • Mon, 02 May 2016
  • 2.00 PM - 3.20 PM
  • Tickets: Free, booking required

Weaving together film and video, often utilising religious imagery, and introducing colour, effects and surface texture, filmmakers generated a new, vividly transcendental style by the end of the post-punk era. Key examples of this sensual, visually mature work are presented alongside other dynamic pieces  that explore the dreamlike state. Cert 15
