Description

On today's episode of Deep Focus, host Tom Breen talks with curator Selby Nimrod, filmmaker Sarah Lasley, and No Pop gallery co-director Laura Marsh about BODY DOUBLES, a one-night screening series of short, experimental movies about the body: the body as an idea, a physical reality, a venue for political debate and artistic exploration.
