‘Gone Tomorrow’ is an exploration of movement, space and time. Civilisations, with their specific dreams and aspirations, come and go leaving us to remember and interpret lives from the past. Shadows fall on ground where others have trodden, and will tread, but eventually we are all gone like the shadows themselves that must fade without a source of light.

Put Down the Remote opened with a preview on Thursday 14 September and ran from Friday 15 – Sunday 17 September, opening 10am – 4pm daily.

Also on Thursday 14 September, MIMC presented Daisies as part of Behind the Curtain, a new Alchemy Film & Arts project that brings a season of films to venues across the Scottish Borders. Behind the Curtain is a celebration of the diversity of cinema, screening documentaries, experimental works, cult, queer, trash and the best work from independent filmmakers from around the world. Daisies is Vēra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema that is perhaps also the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960’s. In the magnificent setting of the Haining House, Chytilová’s avant-garde comedy is sure to delight and stimulate the audience at the beginning of a what will undoubtedly be a memorable YES Arts Festival.

Harriet Warman, programmer of Behind the Curtain said: “I’m thrilled that MIMC have selected such a fantastic film as part of this new season. Behind the Curtain is about creating a warm and welcoming environment in which to see brilliant films that might have been overlooked, celebrating a diversity of identities and filmmaking styles. Daisies, in its riotous experimentation is the perfect MIMC film, representing the radical, experimental and fun spirit of the collective.”
