Citizens: Teasel & Scabious

Saturday 10th November 2012, 12 - 1pm. £12
York St Mary's, Castlegate, York YO1 9RN

As part of the Aesthetica Short Film Festival, Lyndsay Mann has taken the true story of poet Pedro Garfias, briefly exiled in Scotland after the Spanish Civil War, and explores the nuances and dynamics of the obscene, in its literal meaning ‘out of the scene’.

The script is formed from interviews conducted with specialists from several fields. Engaging sculptural installation and hypnotic repetition, the film follows a conversation: silence and language, performance and rhythm, action and memory.
