For the 18th edition of Glued & Screwed series, wysiwyg, based in The Hague (Netherlands), teams up with Video Art Miden to present five short films from four different filmmakers of Greek descent. Glued & Screwed 018 is a program curated by Julian Doove, Mike Kokken (wysiwyg) and Gioula Papadopoulou (Video Art Miden).

The screening will take place on Wednesday 29 May, 21.00 (CEST) at Filmhuis Den Haag.

Appropriately starting with Arrival by Kleoniki Stanich, the program traverses the many paths of what it means to be and feel human, and in some cases even becoming one. To “move through life” is as much a metaphor as it is literal, a sentiment that becomes poignantly clear in each film featured in the program. For this screening we bring together:

– ‘Arrival’ (2023) by Kleoniki Stanich
– ‘I’ve always wanted to see a martian’ (2022) by Smaragda Nitsopoulou
– ‘dead animals with a backstory’ (2024) by Smaragda Nitsopoulou
– ‘Violent Displacement in Three Acts’ (2022) by Makis Kyriakopoulos
– ‘Anina’ (2017) by Alcaeus Spyrou

More info and synopsis of the works:

Glued and Screwed is a monthly shorts program by cinema-platform wysiwyg that squeezes together art- and short films from (local) emerging artists and more renowned (inter)national artists.

wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) is an organisation from The Hague (Netherlands) that creates space for artists with film-making practices. Through experimentation with events, programming, and dialogue, wysiwyg strengthens the playful exchange between artists, audiences and works. By weaving local and international networks, they add a stronger position for artists with film-making practices in the cinematic landscape.

wysiwyg is run by Ruben Verkuylen, Mike Kokken and Julian Doove.
