The event takes place on the  17th of May starting at  22:00.

Poetics is a field that has always interested experimental filmmakers, as they provide strategies for re/de-constructing narrative modes. In this showcase, we deal with filmmakers who create ‘film poems’ : films of an abstract nature narrative-wise, but which also deal to an extent with ideas of the lyrical and transcendental.
