The Best of FLICK
Iguana hosts The Best of FLICK, a showcase of short films from this year’s Festival programme. Includes ‘Time Goes Nowhere’ by Jo Lane, a mixed-media, live action and animation drama following the life of a young man with autism and his move into adult care services. The animation offers a glimpse into his world whilst his obsession with inanimate objects sheds light on the other attachments in his life. Also featured will be ‘The Titles at the End’ by Cheryl Marney, ‘Dead Men’ by Art Foley and ‘Forest of Lies’ by Free Range Chicken, a psychedelic-tinged take on the lesser known Derbyshire film noir genre.
