A Demonstration

Available On Demand, throughout the Festival


Very little dialogue, not subtitled.


Available as part of our Experimental Shorts package.


Exploring the early attempts of early European scientists to understand the natural world, this experimental wonder steps away from dissection and classification to work in the grey area between what is known and unknown, through a contemplative collage of sound and images.


Pointing more to the unyielding mystery of life than to any clear resolutions brought by early naturalists or even current knowledge, A Demonstration shakes the foundations of what we think we know.


"A poetic fever dream you won’t soon forget" - David Mouriquand, ExBerliner


"a complex and lyrical work" - Nick Cunningham, Business Doc Europe
