MODES 1 Image


ALT | Shorts Programs

The first of MODES’ two programs features works that revolve around the subjective notion of "being." Rendered through memory, environment, drones, a complex machine and the untruths of childhood, these films ask us to consider unexplored thresholds of reality.
