February Screenings: Notes on Tenderness


Please note that the installation is unavailable on 12 Jan due to a booking for private event.

Kicking off Valentine’s season is a trio of films on longing and connection, featuring modern romance drama Her, the underrated and offbeat The Unbelievable Truth, and generation-defining ‘romcom’ The Worst Person in the World.

This February, we look at characters who grapple with loneliness in small towns and big cities alike.

In Her, a man searches for the ‘human’ in his relationship with an Artificial Intelligence (AI) operating system, who in turn is slowly developing their own selfhood and independence. In The Unbelievable Truth, a college-bound pessimist becomes enamoured with an ex-convict with unrelenting principles. In The Worst Person in the World, an approaching-30 millennial faces an existential crisis in her career and love choices.

Yearning for something bigger and sweeter, our earnest protagonists embark on a soul-searching journey for self-redemption and transformative love.

Notes on Tenderness continues with a second chapter in March that explores love in all its capacities and complexities, bringing love stories on the margins to the fore. More details coming soon.
