Undercurrents, 'Broad Horizons'

Undercurrents 2006. £14; DVD; available by calling 01792 455900

This new DVD offering from Undercurrents - released on 8 March to mark International Women's Day - compiles nine short films produced by women film-makers. Includes Helen Iles award winning Life Before Death, which reflects on women's experience of terminal illness and brief shorts taking a, sometimes humorous, look at topics such as ID cards, the mental health system, disability, the Clown Army and direct action against nuclear waste shipments in Germany. An eclectic mix and an ongoing project which Undercurrents hope will be “a showcase for women working with film, video, music, design, animation and culture jamming.” Good stuff!
