The films being screened are:

  • XXIX / Laurel MacDonald / Canada / 2010 / 7 min
  • In A Pig’s Eye / Atsushi Wada / Japan / 2010 / 10 min
  • Canopy Crossings / Gary Yong / Thailand & USA / 2010 / 19 min

XXIX is a multicultural performance of a fifteenth century choral piece, whilst Canopy Crossings combines travelogue and wistful fiction in a Thai marketplace. Prepare to be befuddled by the indescribable In A Pig’s Eye, seduced by the Oscar-nominated animation Madagascar, A Journey Diary and won over by Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s life-affirming work The Accordion. Closer to home, Stuart Elliott’s Glasgow-shot The Pedestrian is a hilarious audience-pleaser and Spider Fang! will send shivers down your spine!
