Abandoned Goods and Crystal World
With Pia Borg in person
Abandoned Goods (Dir. Pia Borg and Edward Lawrenson. U.K., 2014, 37 mins.) Years after a mental institution in England has shuttered, a discovery of thousands of artworks, created by patients both skilled and amateur, inspires an intricate cinematic haunting that is part
documentary essay, part mournful rebuke from the beyond. Screening with Crystal World (Dir. Pia Borg. 2013, 12 mins.): Borg enacts a different kind of seance in this disquieting gloss on J.G. Ballard’s novel, pairing stop-motion underwater photography with the ghosts of The Night of the Hunter.
