Tales of Silver City


Virtual Aberdeen Art Gallery


11/06/2020 - 11/07/2020

Is written/directed by Kristina Borhes and Nazar Tymoshchuk. It consists of five short stories filmed during Nuart Festival exploring the city of Aberdeen.

Tales of Silver City is an anthology of Aberdeen tales commissioned by Nuart curator Martyn Reed. It was shot and directed by Ukrainian filmmakers Kristina Borhes and Nazar Tymoshchuk during Nuart Aberdeen. The film is a piece of speculative fiction consisting of a series of five short stories that portray Aberdeen as five very separate fictional cities. Like the festival itself, the film is inspired by, and evokes, Italo Calvino's novel of 1972, "Invisible cities". The stories can be viewed as parables or meditations on life itself. Hidden tales of culture, language, time, memory, death, or as in one case - magic.
