Competition Countdown: Pleasure and Pain

In the countdown to this year's Encounters Festival we share a selection of trailers from each of the International Competition Screenings.

ANIMATION 2: PLEASURE AND PAIN (15)

Screening at 14:00 Wed 17 September at Watershed

Here is a collection of films to antagonise, delight and frustrate. From watery pleasures to visceral and graphic slaughter; some will make you warm whilst others make you squirm. The final message is foreboding and reflective; the avaricious pleasures of today will no doubt pass as pain further down the line.
