Whiskey Chow: you must everywhere wander

A selection of strange occurrences captured in neon blues and deep greys.

Partnered with distorted vocals and deep echoes. A satisfying watch for fans of classic sci-fi. And whilst paying ode to a genre spanning over two centuries these recent works also bring contemporary references and visuals to the screen. Themes of self-medicating, body modification and chronic diseases are presented in ways that are both beautiful and disturbing to experience This screening really captures the wonderful weirdness of contemporary sci-fi.

Featuring self-duplicating sisters in Nekama, mutating spices in you must everywhere wander and surplus PEP pills in Raltagravir.

Curated by Nat Lall.
