Digbeth First Friday – Through A Glass, Darkly.

6th May 2016 @ 18:00 - 23:55

Its time for yet another Digbeth First Friday this time we are screening, Through A Glass, Darkly! A selection of short films as part of ‘This Is Now: Film and Video After Punk’, on May 6th from 9pm.

Provocative filmmakers in the early 1980s pursued occult interests, treating the moving image like a mirror or a crystal ball; a surface of divination to remap perception and question distinctions between what is and what might be, the objective and the subjective, the body and the mind. The programme includes challenging, transgressive work originally connected to the industrial scene..
