The premiere of a compilation of films from Manchester's new arts centre HOME.
Transactions of Desire—also the title of two new publications—is an exploration of our emotional responses against the demands of society. What really motivates our intimate relationships and actions? This screening includes short films by Rob Crosse, Chris Paul Daniels, Una Knox, Rachel Maclean, Laura Morrison, Wong Ping, Jessey Tsang and Wu Tsang. Curated by Sarah Perks, HOME Manchester.
The first publication of the same name is also presented - a book of short romantic fiction by writers including Douglas Coupland, Chris McCormack, Omar Kholeif, Emma Jane Unsworth and Lynne Tillman. The forthcoming second in the series is a self-help book including contributions by Hannah Black, John Walter and Louise O'Hare.
This project has been developed with the support of Film Hub North West Central, part of the BFI's Film Audience Network.
