Following their Gleaners residencies in the North West Film Archive, experimental filmmakers Jenna Collins and Sam Meech present two new kaleido’scopic short films, premiering at AND with live soundtracks from cutting edge Northwest musicians.
Jenna Collins’ new film, in equal parts hypnotic and disruptive, will be accompanied by a performance by multi-instrumentalist Seaming To, regular collaborator with Graham Massey and Homelife (Ninja Tune), and The Cinematic Orchestra.
Sam Meech, builds up a classic narrative with a dream-inflected twist. This epic journey will be narrated live by poet Nathan Jones of the Mercy collective with a score by Carl Brown of Wave Machines (Neapolitan), in a partnership that was described as ‘strident dramatic and compelling’ by The Londonist.

Starting at The Kings Arms in Manchester, these films will embark on a mini-tour of the region taking in Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire and Cumbria.
