Aya Films Presents: Dystopian Dreams

Sorry you missed it! This screening has already taken place.

This event centres on three elements of life which have seen renewed curiosity - Spiritualism, Nuclearism and Futurism. At a time where the dizzying effect of life is reaching tumultuous levels this event will bring together film, food, performance and critical thinking taking audiences on an immersive journey that considers our time and place. It will fuse together concepts of feminism, mythology, mysticism and ecology with place and genre in order to create an experiential event.

Finding Fanon Two collides art-house cinema with digital culture’s Machinima, resulting in a work that explores the post-colonial condition from inside a simulated environment – the Grand Theft Auto 5 in-game video editor. This video work combines several stories, including how the artists’ familial histories relate to colonial history, an examination of how their relationship is formed through the virtual space, and thoughts on the implications of the post-human condition.
