Exeter-based director Josh Gaunt got in touch about the screening of Tera Toma in Torquay on Wednesday (December 2). He was at the Blue Walnut as part of the View from Here film festival to present the harrowing split-screen flick and answer some questions from the gobsmacked audience afterwards.
Josh said of the event: “It was great. I was really excited to get to talk about the experiment in detail with people who had just seen the film for the first time and had no prior knowledge.
“I’m keen to get even more varying perspectives on the work. Ultimately, all I want from the film is for it to spark discussions.
“I’m trying to put a kind of tour together for the film in the new year and it would be cool to get it screened at the Blue Walnut again to a full house.
“The venue was excellent. It would be nice to try and do more there. The night was well worth the horrible traffic and rain!”
You can mingle with Josh (along with other local filmmakers and shakers) and watch a selection of films with a South Devon link at Newton Abbot’s Coombeshead College tonight (Friday, December 4) from 7pm.
The View from Here finale event will be hosted by Chris Britton, one of performance art group Forkbeard Fantasy’s founder members, who will be talking about exciting ways of combining film with theatre and art installations.
Tickets for the evening cost £5 and can be booked via Newton Abbot Tourist Information Centre.
