SYNOPSIS

The Gods of Tiny Things 2019 dir. Deborah Kelly (5.35 mins)

“Deborah Kelly’s kaleidoscopic video unleashes a vivid collage of animated figures and landscapes cut free from the pages of old magazines and encyclopaedias. Created at ‘collage camp’ on beautiful Yuin Country with visual and musical collaborators, the work explores the threats of extinction and the climate crisis, the tolls of colonialism, and the global political shift to the right, while conversely revealing in the hectic pleasures and desires of life itself.” The Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne
