Dream Land is a new film by Heather Phillipson which incorporates archival BBC wildlife footage, recast as hallucination.


Opening with its bug protagonist sucked through a vacuum cleaner nozzle, the film lands us in an alternative world which resembles our own but as if broadcast from another dimension. Remixing and revoicing remarkable scenes from innovative 1980s nature documentaries Supersense and Life Sense, Dream Land presents earthly life as a dream, accessed via the bizarre and precious lives by which we’re surrounded. Its leading characters shapeshift between species and environments, reprogrammed to form an alternative narrative. Creatures appear as interlocutors, harbingers and guides. In parallel, it is scored with a soundscape, composed by the artist, that samples the crackles of wildlife into a strange new music.

The Screening starts on the hour every hour, the film is 38min long. The Screening will be in Screen 4 of the Cinema.

Booking is advised, and all ticket holders can receive a 10% discount on food and drinks at the Regal restaurant.

Practicalities: The site is wheelchair accessible.
