The screening is programmed around the work of two artists who interweave phenomenological bodies and cosmic dimensions with a resolutely post-digital approach. Both draw their images and sounds from nature while combining them with non-realist post-production techniques. From these methods emerge image flows and acoustic rhythms that take the viewer to other worlds. The films screened were chosen so that this cosmic dimension in the interaction of visions of human and non-human bodies alongside those of affective nature becomes readily apparent.

Other works such as Sisterhood portrayed the life of other female artists identified with the 1970s womens movement in New Zealand.
