Kinesthesia Festival is about the way we perceive the moving image – seeing through the body. Screenings will start with a guided ‘invitation’ to tune into the sensory capacity of the body.
For those attending online, there will be three pre-recorded invitations: Sight, Sound, and Touch. Feel free to combine them with any screening.

Touch it. See it. and Feel it.

Wore the dress courage, migrant’s hope floats restless in the sea as a crammed message in a bottle that runs on uncertain trajectories.
