Filmmaking duo Silken Weinberg and Angela Ricciardi present The Giver Gives to Give, a black & white experimental short film starring Poppy Jean Crawford.
Set to an original score by Sasami and Dylan Nowik, TGGTG takes place within the outskirts of Poppy’s mind: a spiraling black void with music as her guide. As she explores the interconnectedness and resilience of the mind / heart relationship, she meets a variety of key characters that help her question and resolve what it means to give and be taken from.
The cast includes Helen Ballentine (Skullcrusher) as the fisherman, Lucas Tamarin (Thumasaurus), as the Boxer and Brian Lee Hughes as the Ringmaster.
There will be live performances by Poppy Jean Crawford and Camp Saint Helene following the film premier and a live DJ set by Fever Dream to close the evening.
