In the first of a series of short films, produced in collaboration with The Smalls, we invite London-based illustrator Amanda Eliasson to explore the theme - Censorship.
Amanda on 'censorship': 'My biggest concern about censorship, as an artist, is the governmental violation of the free speech. I got the idea of this film, 'Square Face', when a social media post I made; searching for a ‘riot grrrl’ band, was taken down. The takedown was just absurd to me and I wanted to play on that absurdness in my film and censor everyday-words to make it impossible for the main characters to communicate.'
Throughout 2018, we’re working with The Smalls to present twelve new short films directed by emerging filmmakers in response to the themes explored by The Art of Change in The Art of Change Shorts
