Film Details

Datacosm

Dir: Jo Lawrence

Dur: 09:01

At the dawn of the Datacosm, data is planted, harvested, transported, stored and processed as data-feed for consumption by the data eaters. The infiltration of the data storage facility by a hacker leads to contamination by a thought virus which alters the Datacosm forever. Set in a puppet theatre, data scientists (as puppeteers) control puppets, objects and analogue data to create the narrative on the stage above.

Swivel

Dir: Lois Norman

Dur: 06:39

What if you can be all of who you are and still allow another? That just for one night, judgement no longer exists? What if, an intimacy of touch, a truth of want, Swivels around your doubt and trusts? What if, love is not a gender, it is a swivel of the heart? Celebrating gender fluidity: two people, any two people, trying to connect both with themselves and with each other.


The Circle

Dir: Lanre Malaolu

Dur: 15:25

The Circle is a bold and lyrical portrayal of two brothers from inner city London, and the challenges they face daily, interpreted through dance.

Bun na Spiére (the Bottom of the Sky)

Dir: Paul Kenny

Dur: 15:30

Bun na Spéire is created using seawater and scraps of metallic flotsam and jetsam collected from a beach at Downpatrick Head, Mayo. The title is an Irish language term for “horizon”, the literal English translation is “bottom of the sky”.

The film comprises a set of slowly evolving still images that hypnotise and sooth viewers over the course of fifteen minutes.

Burnout

Dirs: Joshua Vendetta Nash, Gemma Pons Alsina

Dur:04:10

It seems his fire isn’t burning any longer, it’s extinguished. A young man. Stalked by his inner demons, burdened by a lost imagination for the future and alienated by the isolation of the current world. Before it’s too late, he seeks an escape to a time when he was younger, more playful…uncaged.

Align

Dir: R.E. Wolfe

Dur: 07:22

A conceptual dance film that presents two radically different dance forms: ballet and pole dance. The juxtaposition between the two crafts is demonstrated throughout, but the cinematographic choices also allow the audience to see the parallels between the two crafts and between these two women who are united in numerous ways, including rhythm, gracefulness and athleticism.

The 1st Dissonant Piece for the Camera and the Body

Dirs: Matija Kralj, Nastasja Štefanić

Dur: 18:00

Experimental dance film created by conducting a survey on interpretations of terms consonance and dissonance among people of different professions. The (re-)occupying of spaces not intended for human use or spaces that are now only a feeble reflect of the presence of life, sets the film on the line between non-spaces, and space established by filling and/or emptying a space, and intense directing and editing interventions.

TREMBLE

Dirs: Jessica Wright, Morgann Runacre-Temple

Dur: 04:00

An abstract dining room is the setting for Scottish Ballet’s largest film yet. Tremble stars 26 Scottish Ballet dancers and has been co-choreographed and directed by Jessica Wright and Morgann Runacre-Temple, set to Anna Meredith’s brassy track ‘Nautilus’. Comic surrealism and offbeat invention involving frenetically dancing waiters, red jelly and a thrillerish edge.

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 79 minutes
