SILHOUETTE SECRETS (United Kingdom / United States)

November 19, 2022 @ 10:00 am to approx. 12:00 pm

Silhouette Secrets is a documentary in which a modern-day silhouette artist takes a journey back in time to explore the history of his shadowy art, asking the question “Where did it come from?”  On the way he meets the world’s fastest silhouette artist, who challenges him to a duel of scissors!  The journey takes him from a windswept seaside pier – on the north coast of Wales – to an Audi showroom in Houston, Texas, and finishes with an intriguing answer to his question.
