Edge of Frame at LIAF 2020

Still from Circumstantial Pleasures (2012-19) by Lewis Klahr

Edge of Frame presents three programmes of new experimental animation for London International Animation Festival 2020, taking place at the Barbican and online. In an unprecedented year of uncertainty and upheaval, these works reflect our times in powerful and imaginative ways. Some have been completed in recent months, such as Peter Burr’s BLACK SQUARE, which we are delighted to present as a world premiere in States of Emergency, a programme of recent shorts from the USA. Other works predate the Covid 19 outbreak, such as Lewis Klahr’s extraordinary six-film cycle Circumstantial Pleasures, and yet feel perfectly attuned to our present moment. Our final presentation is Karolina Glusiec’s profoundly moving feature-length trilogy The Instrument / The Fool / The Landscape. We are honoured to give these new long-form pieces from Karolina and Lewis their UK premieres, and both are truly significant, ambitious and important works of experimental animation. In their markedly different ways, all of the works on show this year couldn’t be more suited to these perilous times.
