Tickets: £2
(Seats allocated on a first come first serve basis)

This film programme presents a broad selection of short films that focus on the meaning of language beyond its verbal articulation. Six international filmmakers explore the way in which language relates us to the world: language is a means of communication, a matrix of behavioural codes and cultural values, an extention of the body and integral to our identity. But what happens to language when it is displaced? Migration can result in the mutation, or mutilation and even muteness of language. Displacement - geographical, social, or gender-related - creates phoney languages, counterfeit codes that negotiate the gap between the familiar and the foreign. Phoney Language also refers to the central role the telephone (the ‘far sound’) plays in some of the films.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Stefan Constantinescu, Nana O Ayim, Zuzanna Janin, Florian Wüst and Maxa Zoller.
