A RADA Festival commission, The Very Error Of The Moon has been shot entirely on a smartphone and GoPro during the coronavirus lockdown. The piece intelligently interweaves animation, film footage and an everyday soundscape.
Created just a few weeks after the death of George Floyd, The Very Error Of The Moon was inspired initially by Shakespeare’s Othello. This perceptive and urgent short film examines the costs of being ‘othered’ in a radicalised world and is told from the perspective of a young Black British person living through the current, challenging times.
Performed as part of Homemakers, an online festival by HOME Manchester. Easily accessible – on a pay-what-you-can basis – the festival features new commissions created by artists working at home, for audiences who are staying at home.
