Two people in a dreamy-like scenery entangled into each other.

(Tending) (to) (Ta)

(Tending) (to) (Ta) is a narrative-led speculative fiction film which follows an exchange of internal letters between two protagonists who imagine one another across parallel dimensions. Each communicating to an envisioned other, who exists as a possibility beyond their self-perceived boundaries of reality, these two beings meet in a shared world of imagination.

During the event, we’ll invite you to think of the following question: what would you ask somebody living in a parallel universe to ours, one freed from the confines of language, gender, and hyper-separation between human and nature? Join us before and after the screening for a (re)writing session that imagines real utopias, an exercise in letter-writing to an inhabitant of an otherworldly realm. In this gentle, meditative dialogue, maybe we can unlock a way to bring their world into ours.

In partnership with Take One Action.
