PLATA O PLOMO, dir. Nadia Granados
Alligator wrestling, amphetamine-induced monologuing about Pikachu and microbiomes converge in this programme of performance, character and confession.
Featuring new works by Colombian performance artist Nadia Granados (Borderhole), video artist Andrew Norman Wilson (Workers Leaving the Googleplex) and conceptual monologist Steve Reinke (Semen is the Piss of Dreams), these films explore the ways the performative can be harnessed for dazzling or disorienting effect. Programmed by Tom Grimshaw and the international selection committee. 84'
The programme contains distressing imagery, violence and bodily harm.
Please note, the film Halpate can only be accessed by UK audiences at the request of the filmmakers.
