Friday, 22 January 2021
CLUB ZODIAC, dir. Joe Hunting
From correspondences with inmates and an old man with bongs in his walking sticks, to VR pole-dancing classes and heart-to-hearts with fetishists, these works document the forging of unexpected connections across interest, passion and obsession.
Looking at the nature of alienation and the singular ways we each soothe this familiar ailment, these filmmakers' tenderness towards their subjects is undeniable. This collection of lighthearted, non-judgmental documentaries offers up forthright expressions of kinship and loneliness, featuring the latest from Jan Soldat (The Fifth Season, Be Loved) and more meta-verse exploration from Joe Hunting (A Wider Screen).
Programmed by Miranda Mungai. 53'

A WILDERNESS OF LOST CONNECTIONS
‘Where is the light coming from?’ What rhetorical structures do people set up to see the light? Three distinct belief systems are juxtapositioned to form an ambiguous understanding of its macro protagonist, America, raising questions of legitimacy, conspiracy, security and truth.
