The Great Wall

Rather than accepting that knowledge is simply accumulated, artist Guy Laramee views the world’s knowledge as a resource that is eroded over time.  In the same way that mountains slowly erode to hills, piles of obsolete encyclopedias eventually erode from sources of knowledge to objects that simply exist.

How Wings are Attached to the Backs Of Angels

Craig Welch takes viewers inside a surreal, meticulously crafted world to meet a mysterious protagonist and his otherworldly visitor.

In this surreal exposition, we meet a man, obsessed with control. His intricate gadgets manipulate yet insulate, as his science dissects and reduces.

How exactly are wings attached to the back of angels?

In this invented world drained of emotion, where everything goes through the motions, he is brushed by indefinite longings. Whether he can transcend his obsessions and fears is the heart of the matter.

A film without words.
