Three innovative young filmmakers explore the psychology of alternative viewpoints in their individual works, Taste of Freedom, Fidget and The Difference Between the Sprout and the Bean.

The individual works explore dynamic and experimental ways of looking at the moving image through their own distinctive pace of style and narrative, originating from the artists’ personal backgrounds and experiences.

The artists are unified through a clear sense of personal reflection in their work drawing on life experiences past and current.

Roza Ilgen work Taste of Freedom, draws upon her early experiences growing up in Kurdistan, Turkey, Oslo and Norway. Chris Keenan’s work, Fidget, explores another viewpoint based on uncomfortable movements. Catherine Griffith’s work entitled The Difference Between the Sprout and the Bean explores the human relationship with memory.

Each of the works uses a wide range of innovative film techniques to introduce the viewer to the moving image in many thought provoking and distinctive ways.
