A major new moving image commission by filmmakers Adam Khalil and Bayley Sweitzer.

Acclaimed for their science-fiction political thrillers set against a backdrop of racialised police brutality and mass surveillance, their films combine camcorder footage and pro-shot video, digital animation and drone imaging. Multiple sources and formats are weaved together into kaleidoscopic experiences that subvert traditional forms of storytelling through the excavation of subterranean histories and an engagement with indigenous worldviews, queer energies and minoritarian politics.
