Canada/Italy/UK 2016, 6mins
Two travelling actors, discussing an old trunk gag, discover two stowaways – whereupon all their roles are suddenly reversed. Harking back to theatrical moments in movie theatres, The Coat invokes long forgotten performative and social aspects of cinema-going. The first of four short films in the 2016 ICO Artists’ Cinema series, bringing the work of leading visual artists, often playfully and subversively, to diverse cinema audiences.

Cinematographically interesting but could have done with sub-titles for those not fluent in Italian
Couldn’t make it out
Did you forget to play some of this?
The credits were the best part
