22-01-21 DOCUMENTARY: Nobody Wants A Lonely Heart

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'
