Black Box 3: Matter and Metamorphosis

Experiments in matter and materials, nature and alchemy.

This contemplative programme of short films presents diverse approaches to the transformational potential of organic matter. Earth, sand, water, salt and snow offer up their formal complexities and perceptual conundrums, giving flight to the imagination and conjuring up uncanny mystical worlds. Footage from an Indian television series and scenes from Charles Laughton’s Night of the Hunter combine with semi-abstract studies of natural phenomena. Includes works by British filmmaker Nicky Hamlyn, Pia Borg and Robert Todd, amongst others.
