Focus your gaze towards the periphery and find a kaleidoscope of perspectives. These films explore sexual liberation via custom video game characters, a neurodiverse artist's psychedelic world, and a dreamlike meditation on Iranian cinema. Including work from Andrew Kötting (Lek And The Dogs, The Whalebone Box), Maryam Tafakory (I Have Sinned A Rapturous Sin), Remi Itani (Drought, A Long Breath).

A Woman on the Internet (Or, The Eternal Scream)
A filmic response to Lynn Hershman Leeson’s text, Romancing the Anti-body (1995), exploring the jarring juxtapositions of friction, toxicity, joy and liberation that trans people, queers and femmes experience when playing as their own custom character creations in video game spaces.
Diseased and Disorderly
DISEASED AND DISORDERLY is a film that uses the paintings, drawings and collages of the neurodiverse artist Eden Kötting to make imagistic gold. Assisted by her father Andrew Kötting, the 2D animator Glenn Whiting and the 3D animator Isabel Skinner the collaboration takes us on a phantasmagorical journey into a world of Eden’s making and then beyond.
