Film Programme 3: Collective Actions

Film Programme 3: Collective Actions


Individual experience separated by physical boundaries (of space, time or ability) suggested as communities of collective experience by (perhaps voyeuristic) artists.


In a hard sense you can’t transcend certain physical boundaries, but maybe a transformation or understanding can occur in the reception of community, an accepting of what’s common, of similarity and self-expression.
