To tie in with a brand new season of exhibitions and events, FACT presents a trilogy of cult-classic film.

New exhibition you feel me_ takes a close and sensitive look at the dynamics of power which we experience in daily life, both online and offline. It is these power systems that rule our actions, opinions and responses to the world around us, and to each other.

This three-part film series has been curated to root the viewer right within the context of the exhibition, offering a whole new dimension of understanding through compelling cinematography and storytelling, spanning societal structures and social justice.
