    Transit Arts presents Soft Cells

  • When
    15 March 19:15 - 22:15
  • A programme about soft bodies in hard places, six international artist-filmmakers surveil the eerie control of urban life. Chicago skyscrapers pierce the cosmos, a ghostly torso contorts under a communications satellite, obsolete sci-fi technologies strobe and enchant, an abandoned Panopticon prison yields to the landscape, city windows at night leak an anthology of private moments, and two women pace the empty streets of Glasgow.

    Klaus vom Bruch (Germany), Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller (Germany), Tessa Lynch (UK), Amie Siegel (USA), and Fern Silva (USA/Portugal).

    'Soft Cells' is part of Glasgow Short Film Festival 2018 and is the third screening in Uncanny Loop, an ongoing programme of artists’ moving image connecting the contemporary urban experience with the Gothic mode. Curated by Transit Arts, with the support of Arsenal Berlin.
