    (S8) Mostra Internacional de Cinema Periférico will return to A Coruña from May 31 to June 4 to celebrating a special anniversary- its 8th edition - with an ambitious program. The new edition, under the title of Objects and Apparitions, is inspired by found footage cinema under the figure of the seminal artist of this film process, Joseph Cornell. The legacy of the North American multidisciplinary and surrealist creator has guided the elaboration of the official poster, where, imitating a kind of Cornell box, the spirit of appropriation is used to reflect his whole philosophy. Together with Cornell, the (S8) will present the works of two of the most prominent representatives of found footage film now: Cécile Fontaine and Luther Price. In addition, the program Found Sounds, curated by Mónica Savirón, will revolve around the work of Dutch filmmaker Barbara Meter.
