The Neon Hieroglyph
Take a trip into the unconventional mind of Turner Prize award-winning artist, Tai Shani, in this exciting new iteration of her film The Neon Hieroglyph, created for SIFA 2022.
With scenes set in ‘impossible places’, The Neon Hieroglyph segues from the cellular to the planetary, from ice cream sundaes to Palaeolithic caves, dancing plagues to communist witches, as Shani weaves her subtle commentaries on altered states, communality and speculative futures.
In the register of the fantastical, immaterial and mystical, Shani casts well-known Malaysian actress Jo Kukathas in the role of narrator for this new exciting iteration of The Neon Hieroglyph.
Astonishing, iconoclastic and full of surprise, The Neon Hieroglyph is a spectacular filmic performance not to be missed.
