We Cannot Unsee is a programme of six works made by artists at no.w.here as part of a collaborative project between no.w.here and BFI which was supported by King's College London, and generously funded by Wellcome Trust.
The films screening draw upon the potentials for science fiction imagery and narratives to communicate the ways in which people experience a range of symptoms associated with psychiatric and brain disorders. By working with film - a visual form which offers alternative nonlinear, non-verbal impressionistic ways to convey lived experience these works aim to deepen our understanding of symptoms associated with patho-psychologies, and reassign agency to those who experience them.
The artists will be in attendance, and will be on hand for a post-screening discussion of their work and the project’s innovative approach to representing psychologies.
