The ethically hazardous terrains of nationalism, migration and borders are explored in Stills' latest Film Lounge programme. Approaching documentary as a potentially loaded, subjective and theatrical practice these artists use animation and home video cameras to examine politically charged situations in Estonia, Sudan, Israel and the Czech Republic.

Featuring four film works by Estonian visual artist and documentary film-maker, Kristina Norman, Israeli artist, Shlomi Yaffe, Swedish animated documentary film-makers, David Aronowitsch and Hanna Heilborn and Avi Mograbi, one of Israel's most celebrated non-fiction film-makers.
