We are proud to present this year’s screening program for PARTICLE + WAVE that features filmmakers from around the world that experiment with narratives, mediums and personal perspectives. Each work defies convention and are innovative and unique in the way they tell a story and/or how the work was created. Having received over 200 submissions this year, we chose ten short films that explores the human connection through visual poetry, archive footage, personal memories and a sex hotline.

a quiet flamenco exposes the introverted and vulnerable aspects of flamenco dance through interlapping/contrasting/complementing/experimenting works in sound and film. It is an immersive sensory experience, which makes space, opens space and allows space for perhaps unexpected variations of flamenco expression.
Pillar to Post
Nick Heer & Alex Moon
Location: EMMEDIA Gallery – 2005 10 Ave SW
February 1 – March 2, 2019 (Gallery hours: Tues-Sat 12-6PM, closed on Feb 16)
Opening Reception: February 1, 2019 @ 7-10PM
FREE admission
An installation exploring the insidious corruptibility of our material and personal relationships through the internet. We communicate haphazardly, moving from pillar to post, through cables and oscillations. The desire of connecting to each other being the very thing driving us apart. An inquisition about connectedness in the cold monolithic spheres of data.
