LIAF 2017: Edge of Frame – After Nature (Part Two)

December 3, 2017
8:00 pm

Following the sell-out success of our partnership with Edge of Frame during LIAF 2016, we’re returning with three curated programmes of work at the intersection of animation, experimental film and artists’ moving image. Specially curated by Edwin Rostron – the London-based Artist, Animator, Writer, Curator, Editor of Edge of Frame blog and Festival Juror this trio of programmes seeks to celebrate this incredibly rich and vibrant, yet often marginalised and hard to define art form.

Speculations (Ben Balcom, USA)

Speculations, Ben Balcom, LIAF, London International Animation FestivalThere is no way to begin. This catalogue of passing encounters traces the feelings imprinted onto a city’s architecture. Some of these people we used to meet at random, perhaps while we were out working or walking. They talk about making their way through this precarious place. Most of them are gone now. The city soaks them up.
