Gavin Hipkins' New Age to screen at Short Film Festival Oberhausen

Gavin Hipkins' latest short film New Age (2016) will have its world premiere in the prestigious International Competition at the 62nd International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.  Oberhausen is one of the leading international film festivals dedicated to short film as a specific medium of artistic expression. In New Age, Hipkins calls on passages from a nineteenth century spiritualist manual. Set within the ritual landscape of Avebury’s stone circles, Hipkins' film imagines a solstice celebration in which spiritualism and spirit photography are revisited in the twenty-first century.
