Programme

TERRAIN: Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th October

 

Filmmakers explore the ground that we walk on, the way that we tread, and the things that we move through. The works in TERRAIN are concerned with the queer body in place and space, generating films that are sensitive, sensual and satirical.
