In this experimental journey, the spectator is invited to fill the gaps and connect the dots. Films to Break Projectors, making its world premiere at Flatpack, is a wonderful tribute to celluloid. The one and only Douwe Dijkstra, winner of the Audience Award last year, comes back with his poetic and political Green Screen Gringo. Austrian animator Nikolaus Jantsch will premiere his short film A Love Story. Jantsch was at the ACF London in January of this year with his students from the Angewandte in Vienna to take part in an exchange with Middlesex University. We are delighted to see his work featured as part of this programme.
