Shorts: Body Politik

20 Nov | Showroom Big Space | 1.30pm | FREE


Bodies that provoke, challenge, transgress and uplift – 8 shorts that push the perception of the skin we live in. Narrative film, documentary and high-camp pop each tell a story of a body in life and motion. Radical and emancipatory, these shorts explore the various ways in which the body gets politicised,  with challenging, playful, and rallying gusto.
