From the censorship board, Enid is an editor responsible for cutting out extreme scenes from the slasher video films that took over in the 1980s. Enid is shaken after a horrific series of murders is committed using the method in one of the films she has approved. But her real shock is when she sees disastrous scenes that she associates with her past in movies that come for approval. Censor, praised for its innovative language and praised on Heavyhorror.com as "surreal and striking as well as strangely disturbing", was featured in both the Midnight section at Sundance and the Panorama section in Berlinale. One of the films that best reflects post-traumatic issues to the screen without sacrificing 1980s video aesthetics, Censor is the first feature film directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, a fan of David Lynch, Harmony Korine, Quentin Tarantino and Douglas Circus.

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
