19th November – Various venues – 12pm-6pm

The Wandering Frame is a day of screenings based around the experience of walking the city. The films presented include the process of contemplation, as one wanders and wonders on a walk or a cycle through the urban landscape. How do the architecture, people and history of our surrounding environments impact us and influence our thought processes? The “turmoil of life” of the metropolis is a trigger for reflexive states of mind, put in motion while we walk through its streets.

The screenings will take place on the 19th November across three non-traditional venues, welcoming you to walk between these places to reflect on what you’ve just seen, discover new spaces in your city, or simply to get lost in streets or thoughts.
