Susannah Gent's Unhomely Street to premiere in Oberhausen
Wednesday 03 May 2017
Susannah Gent's short film 'Unhomely Street' has been selected to première at the International Short Film Festival of Oberhausen later this month. The festival is a prestigious event for short films and a champion of experimental work.
'Unhomely Street' is a twenty-minute experimental film that explores mental illness through the fictional tale of a woman in a state of fugue. The film also considers the subject of hauntology through representing a subjective condition, that of post-concussive syndrome, where anxiety about capitalism and the impending future, in the light of the atrocities of last century, haunt the protagonist, a woman in a state of fugue, navigating an alienating city.
