Short Film Program | Optic Nerves
Some of the most exciting and unique works we receive each year are those experimental constructions which, while emerging from and provoking consideration of significant scientific questions, also most resolutely defy categorization or definition as a “science film”. For these films, difficult to find a spot for, yet essential to show, we’ve created Optic Nerves: sometimes disorienting, often visually arresting, always surprising. Mysterious optical experiments, traumatic medical experiences, and sci-fi avant-garde reflections on identity in a post-digital age.
