As part of Coulson & Tennant and Helene Schmitz’s Exhibition
Reception for the exhibitions with a special screening of Coulson and Tennant’s award winning short ‘Fractured’ (2020, duration 4.44 mins), which explores the tensions and complications between our virtual and physical worlds. A stunning, experimental documentary filmed in the polar regions, it subtley questions our complicated consumption of environmental imagery through digital platforms. As the creation of our virtual worlds increase, our natural world is disappearing at an alarming rate. In the future, will these environments only exist as pixelated memories?. ‘Fractured’ has been screened in multiple film festivals in Europe and America including the International Migration and Environmental Festival in Toronto and The Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in New York. Fractured was awarded best ‘Super Short’ and ‘Experimental Short’ at the Short Film Factory and Best Short Film Festival in 2020.
