Sun 14 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 18:00

The films in this program tell real life stories, using materials with a direct relation to a historical reality, like the audio recording of an interview.

KLIK Curated – State of Mind

Each year, KLIK presents a carefully curated selection of films that touch on a current theme. Whether it’s gender fluidity and queer culture (Boys, Girls & Beyond, 2014), a return to DIY culture and craftsmanship (Rock, Paper, Scissors, 2015) or becoming aware of your surroundings (The World We Live in, 2016), KLIK aims to show and address current societal trends and issues through the medium of animation.

This year, KLIK takes an introspective dive into the wondrous world(s) of the mind. From explorations of emotional states and temperaments, to visually provocative voyages through dreaming minds, drugs and mental illnesses, this year's set of curated films represent the mysterious, endless and fascinating world of the mind.

Playing with the tropes of the theme a 'State of Mind', these animations show glimpses into the minds of others. As a result, we hope to spark both conversations and an awareness of the many perspectives and perceptions of the (inner and outer) worlds.

Body & Mind, Aligned

Wed 10 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 13:00
Fri 12 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 12:00

Daily bombardment of information? Check. Work stress? Check. Relationship worries? Check. Balance? Ch… aw shucks.

Living in a state of perpetual overload gets to us all. In this program, we deep-dive into the recesses of our minds, bodies and souls in exploring the art of finding happiness, balance and relaxation – be it through sports, yoga or mindfulness.

Chemicals, Caffeine & Everything in Between

Wed 10 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 22:00
Thu 11 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 12:30

Since the dawning of mankind, humans have found a way of enhancing lives with (illicit) substances, both natural and synthetic. Today, chemicals are everywhere – whether its coffee, tea, alcohol, additives, sugar or horse tranquilisers – somebody somewhere is indulging. So, what exactly does this chemical dependency do to us?

This programme explores the pros and cons of different forms, dimensions and perceptions of drug use.

Also, apparently sugar is as addictive as crack. Who'da thunk it? *Sips 11th milkshake*

Different Minds, Altered States

Thu 11 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 16:00
Fri 12 Oct, EYE 2, 75min 15:00

It's a cliché that everyone's view of the world is different, but it's an inescapable reality for those whose minds function very differently. Whether through injury, developmental disorders or illnesses like depression and schizophrenia, a portion of us perceive the world in significantly altered ways. This program is devoted to paying attention to these altered states of mind.

Paprika

Thu 11 Oct, EYE 1, 90min 22:15

In this Japanese sci-fi thriller from director Satoshi Kon, a scientist uses a device that permits therapists to help patients by entering their dreams.
