UK COMPETITION: Lessons In Survival
THE NAME I CALL MYSELF, dir. Rhea Dillon
Whether old family and friends or strangers we meet along the way, protecting those around us is essential to our survival and informing our evolving morality.
From London nightlife to a dystopian vision of a far right future, from the foot of the Eiffel Tower to the deconstruction of black LGBTQ+ identities, this programme spans new collaborations between Aneil Karia (Surge) and musician-actor Riz Ahmed (The Night Of, Rogue One), and multi-screen moving image from Dazed 100 artist Rhea Dillon. With performances from Sam Spruell (Mangrove) and Esme Creed-Miles (Hanna).
