Frames of Representation: Delta + Q&A

22 Apr 2018

…unbearable lightness of being. - faktura film

This screening is a UK premiere

Join us for a Q&A with director Oleksandr Techynskyi following the screening, hosted by Simran Hans, film critic for The Observer

In the isolated, rural world of the Danube delta, daily life is centred on a harsh and unforgiving landscape. Men cut through tall reeds and ice to bring in the harvest by boat, orthodox church-goers fill vessels of holy water. Here, the river is the central protagonist: the villagers find themselves at the margins, physically and symbolically pushed to the edges of the frame.

With its unremitting observational focus, Delta explores the significance of the human, evoking the interconnectedness of relationships and resources in an extreme environment.

Join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #FoR18
