There are not one, but two screenings of international shorts at Two Short Nights at the Exeter Phoenix, and they go but such alluring titles that you should turn your phone to silent and bag your tickets tout de suite, as they say in international circles.
The first, A Dislocated Existence, takes place on Thursday, November 26 at 6pm. These films are motivated by characters that want to connect to someone, something, somehow.
“For some,” says the blurb, “life can be missing interaction. For others their sense of being is fuelled by a series of tangled associations that result in nothing but further absence and isolation.”
This first screening features two films from Spain, with four from the UK.
The second screening is called All About Perspective (Thursday, November 26 at 7.30pm) and contains ‘four different stories motivated by the struggle of the human spirit. Who’s side do you see?’
It’s not recommended for a young audience, and will be ‘receded by a screening of Beltcraft Studios, a short video artwork by Ruaidhri Ryan, winner of the Exeter Contemporary Open 2015: Artists Moving Image Award’.
And if international films are your thing, pop along to the International Documentary Shorts screening –The Untold and the Beautiful: these are ‘a range of documentaries, which visit the brave, the unseen, and beautiful from the UK and the rest of the world’.
The International Documentary Screening is on Friday, November 27 at 7.30pm.
