Prototype Care Package

Prototype, an independently-run online cinematheque, is delivering a series of projects in response to lockdown; direct to your inboxes, weekly. The ‘Prototype Care Package’ provides audiences with creative encounters, community and solace during home isolation with new or re-edited experimental short films, moving image art, video essays and the undefined.

Artists Sarah Hadley, Robert Nugent, Sam Smith, Pilar Mata Dupont, Esther Carlin, Malena Szlam, Leyla Stevens, Tiyan Baker, Amelia Hine, Sari Braithwaite, and Allison Chhorn offer reimagined possibilities of the present by exploring new landscapes and modes of communication. From ‘outback picnic stands’ and mineral extraction sites, to racing pigeons and flying mail, the psychoanalysis of a fictitious tyrant, and restraints of language, as well as social distancing themes of distance, touch and disgust.
