SYNOPSIS

A special shorts program showcasing two films by Pia Borg, the only Australian filmmaker to have their work featured at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. One of the most fascinating voices in contemporary Australian cinema, Melbourne-born Borg blurs the line between truth and fiction in fascinating visual essays.

Demonic

A dreamy examination of the ‘Satanic Panic’ of the 1980s, in which a mass hysteria revived supposed memories of cultish sacrifice and ritualistic abuse in people around the world.

Silica

A hypnotising exploration of artifice and belonging wrap around a narrative that follows a location scout arriving in Coober Pedy to undertake research for an upcoming science fiction film.
