Pragmatopia (2018, 30 minutes, 4K colour, Live action)

It follows two young women as they journey from the outskirts of the city to a radioactive area deep in the woods. Along the way they encounter a young drifter and he travels with them. When they arrive at their destination, they discover a community of survivors who are in hiding from the government and living off the contaminated land.

“Pixie Cram’s film stages a hypothetical nuclear fallout, eerily bringing antique military equipment, uniforms and other objects to life with stop-motion in a way that chillingly evokes the fragile state of current global politics.” — Christopher Rohde, Director, Mirror Mountain Film Festival

The Stone Dreams of the Cell (2018, 1.45 minutes, Black and white super-8)

Inspired by Alain Cavalier’s feature, La Rencontre (1996), this film explores objects and textures, both organic and inorganic. It is a poetic expression of the mundane; the beauty of ordinary objects, and the hidden stories and meaning that they hold.
