(POSTPONED) Nitrate Kisses | Reading the Anarchive with So Mayer

Please note this event is cancelled/postponed for the time being – but do stay tuned, there will be more anarchival fun with So and Document on the way in the coming months! 

Join us as we close the festival with an informal discussion led by film writer and curator, So Mayer – open to all!

We’ll be touching on some of the major themes and works of this year’s festival, exploring the creative processes that link politics, film and activism, and ideas around the ‘anarchival’ (re)claiming of collective histories.

Speakers TBC – check back here for more info soon!
