Nocturnal Reflections presents 3 films by Giuseppe Boccassini. Reflecting on the concept of the haptic proximity of contemporary media, film is a phallic conquerer that, folding in on itself, now flaccid deus ex machina, observes itself from the inside like a lysergic membrane that slowly founders between the folds of its own material.

In October 2014, Light Cone initiated artist residencies dedicated to video-based post-production of films that fall within the realm of experimental cinema, with the objective of supporting ten to fifteen projects per year. The residency is intended to suit the work-flow of experimental filmmakers, and so eligibility criteria are deliberately kept open. Short-, medium, as well as feature-length films are welcome, at the shooting or the editing stage of the project, and with or without the backing of an independent production company. While the project must fit within the field of experimental cinema, no other criteria (length, nationality of filmmaker, etc.) will be imposed.
