filmpro lates present: Hidden out
A short study of moving image as a means not only to capture personal stories but also to induce the viewer to take part and become an active witness.
The programme includes experimental and documentary films, where the narrative is not a clear-cut story but a sequence of emotions experienced by the creators and recorded through their camera lens. Through powerful combinations of sound and visuals, the audience is then prompted to be part of an emotional journey.
Many of these films have only been shared once. Having fulfilled their initial purpose of encapsulating most intimate feelings, they are then often out of sight. Sometimes so are their creators.
'Hidden out' brings these films to the public once again and in doing so reinstates their significance for the arts scene and the artistic value of their creators.
