One of the 12th Jihvala doc festival themes this year is about going beneath the surface, a way of using film to x-ray, penetrate or unveil its subjects and reveal their (often hidden and/or dangerous) contents…

Now the object (of resistance) becomes the magic of Projecting Play ) > (.

Xlt reports + analysis coming soon
