Preview: Transform 2017 - a programme of documentaries and live performances exploring the power of change

Delve into formative moments of human experience to investigate the concept of transformation at Rich Mix, Shoreditch

TRANSFORM 2017 is an evening exploring the concept of transformation as depicted in four British short documentaries.

Short Sighted Cinema is known for curating diverse and compelling programmes for all audiences, and this evening’s line-up at Rich Mix, in Shoreditch, is no exception.

Alice Russell’s ‘Men Buy Sex’ uses testimonies from men about their experiences of paying for sex, but with women lip-syncing their words; while ‘Fay Presto, Queen of Close Up’ (video above) is Hanna Aqvilin’s portrait of a legendary cabaret magician.

Also in store is the fascinating ‘Giles Duley: #MoreThanAnImage’ by Tom Martin and Matt Devine; as well as Gibran Ramos’s stunning ‘8.1 Degrees of Guilt’.

There will also be live autobiographical performances from special guests and a chance to meet the filmmakers during a Q&A session.

Transform 2017 is on at Rich Mix, in Shoreditch, on 9 March. Tickets cost  £7-10 and can be bought in advance. Suitable for over 18s only. Doors open at 7.30pm.
