Films from Nowhere: Utopian Visions of Leeds
Films from Nowhere is a compilation and collage of experimental short film and live performance commissioned by Lumen and Recon Festival. This hour-long event will draw inspiration from the city and reflect a new perspective on what Leeds might be like in a utopian or dystopian future. Expect immersive multiple-screens, spoken word, analogue video feedback, dance, live soundtracks, modular synth and a glimpse into the Leeds video future. Featuring contributions and work by Giles Bailey, Stuart Bannister, Richard Formby, Kathryn Gray, James Islip and Anna Peaker.
