What on Earth

Common Wealth by Robin Deacon

1pm 9 November & 11.30am on 10 & 11 November
(screened as part of the “Experimental 3” grouping)

The entire What On Earth film series have been selected for screening at the Aesthetica Short Film Festival. The six experimental films, by Lucy Cash, Curious, Robin Deacon, Graeme Miller, Matthew Robins and Ackroyd & Harvey discuss the current state of species; at some of the pressures on our planet, issues we face now and futures we may see as a consequence of living as we do today.

The Aesthetica Short Film Festival is a celebration of independent film from across the world, and an outlet for supporting and championing short filmmaking. This year's festival will take place in the historic city of York, with films spanning a wide variety of genres and film styles. Showcasing films across 15 distinct and historic locations from medieval halls to ancient city walls, the festival invites visitors to create their own viewing experience.

What On Earth is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
