NEW SHORTS: Abrasions

21:00 Thu 16 Jan 2020

ICA Cinema 1

Unafraid to challenge audience limits, these works wantonly disregard both convention and pleasantries. Grit your teeth for the crude, confrontational and darkly comic, with fetishes, gruesome tween power play, hidden identities online and bingo callers losing their shit.

Paying their dues at the altar of Lucile Hadžihalilović’s Innocence and Gaspar Noe’s transgressive aesthetics, these filmmakers brandish provocative visual styles and subversive handlings of narrative. Programmed by Philip Ilson. 86’

This programme contains sexual content and ambiguity around consent.
