Moving House screened at this year’s Oberhausen Short Film Festival in a programme curated by David Teh and Gridthiya Gaweewong called Unreal Asia. I couldn’t make it and asked if the organisers could take a picture of the audience for me (I am sentimental like that). They did with what looks like a night vision camera, you can see the audience watching the movie, their posture relaxed (sleeping?). So voyeuristic.
