What on Earth: Landfill


Landfill by Curious

3.05pm. £6 (£5)

Landfill, a short film by Curious and Andrew Kötting has been chosen to be screened at the prestigious 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival, running from 20 June to 1 July. It will be shown as part of EIFF's “Black Box Shorts 2: A Sense of Unease”, an eclectic selection of experimental films that revel in cinema's ability to reveal the strange in the everyday.

“A Beckettian post-apocalyptic picnic. Two women slowly sink into a fissure at the edge of a cliff. Time lapse cinemotography charts their slow descent into the earth as they bravely chat on, trying to figure out what went wrong, whether it was all their fault and how to keep their chins up.”

Landfill is part of the What On Earth series of six short films which look at the state of the species: at some of the pressures on our planet, issues we face now and futures we may see as a consequence of the way we live today.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
