We don’t often think about how we see. From augmented reality to bioanalysis of perception, these four films reconsider how we look at the world and question the nature of seeing.
Films screened in this combined programme
Eye FarmBeny Wagner IFFR 2017 20′
What we eat shapes how we see. The video by artist Beny Wagner explores the relationship between agriculture and perception through the parallel tools of image production and industrial agriculture.

Existing between spy thriller and prank call, this charmingly facetious video by artist Frank Heath is about an SD card hidden in a hollow coin.
DOA (Dead on arrival)Manuel Saiz IFFR 2017 17′
An inescapable film about the wide range of possibilities of being simultaneously dead and alive; as exemplified in medicine, history, literature and religious beliefs.
