Valentine’s day Silent Cinema with Short & Sweet

Valentine's day Silent Cinema with Short & Sweet

Even though the wind was frustratingly-blustery, still we went along to Short & Sweet's first silent cinema in Deer Park, just below the well-known Deer Park Cafe.

Given that Deer Park is in the middle of a residential neighbourhood, Short & Sweet hired the services of a company that does silent discos/parties using headphones that receive the sound via a radio channel. It was quite different (though quite nice actually) sitting amid a group of people, with the only sound being that of the wind blowing and momentary gasps or bursts of laughter.

Julia, founder and curator of Short & Sweet's film evenings, put together a series of short films, animations, and even a music video to entertain us. The genre's were quite diverse, beautiful, and at times probably touched a little on some of the more conservative's boundaries.

Keep an eye on their Cape Town Facebook page for details about their screenings and regular Wednesday evening productions.
