Resolutely non-verbal, the films in this programme rely on the power of the moving image to give visible presence to profound, intangible inner feelings. The desires, fears and fantasies that constitute subjective experience are externalised both onto the performers’ bodies and into the filmic space, which becomes at once intensely personal and symbolic. Most of these films lend flesh to the ambivalent emotions involved in the relationship to an ‘other’.
