Wake Up It's Yesterday

An evening of visually striking films that offer us a space to explore what it is to be a human being through a visual poetic medium.

Each work uses a diverse way to express ideas of human feelings, thoughts, and voices in beautiful and startling ways. Dialogues, monologues, and poetry fill this programme.

Curated by Jamie Rea. Followed by a conversation about the ideas raised in the screening.
