Short Sighted Cinema return this Wednesday with another top-notch (what’s the etymology of that? Imma look this up. Brb… The internet has no clear answer. Great.) programme of short films to screen for your amusement and stimulation.
Tonight’s screening is titled Transform, with all the films dealing with “metamorphic journeys of discovery and transformation. Secrets are shared and identities challenged.” But that’s not all, there will also be live storytelling followed by “open-mic revelations”.
The film programme for the evening features:
The Lady of Lambeth, by Tom Sweetland. A character driven documentary explores themes of disability and old age through the eyes of Ann Parnell-McGarry, a former theatre director and opera dancer.
A Day in the Life of Jacob M. Bird, by Camilla Mathis. A documentary profile on Jacob M. Bird aka “Drag Goddess” Dinah Lux.
Thick Skin, by Justin Hackney and Despina Christodoulou. An insight into the life of Ben, a Mexican wrestler and entertainer, which sheds light on the unusual and intense activity of body suspension.
Notes on Blindness, by James Spinney & Peter Middleton. ‘Cognition is beautiful’ – in the summer of 1983, just days before the birth of his first son, writer and theologian John Hull went blind.
