As part of the Hackney Wicked frivolities this weekend, on Friday 21st from 7pm, Stour Space will join hundreds of cultural institutions worldwide, from Australia to Zimbabwe, supporting films4peace to celebrate World Peace Day — a day for individuals, organizations and countries to demonstrate acts of peace.
films4peace, curated by Mark Coetzee, is an annual short film commission by PUMA.Peace. It features 21 of today’s most innovative artists visually interpreting the subject of peace.
The films include 35 mm live action, experimental animation and fine art. The films are 30- to 90-seconds to facilitate online as well as live screenings. None of the films are language specific. The artists were selected for the quality and scope of their work and their sensitivity in interpreting the theme.
