Location: Nottingham

A mind-bending thriller that challenges audiences to confront the demons that lurk within us.


About Smoke Screen

When a young man succumbs to the allure of a potent psychedelic vape, he unwittingly plunges into a harrowing journey through his own fractured memories. As the intoxicating fumes transport him back to the depths of an abandoned subway, he is compelled to confront the haunting truths lurking within his subconscious. With its gripping narrative and immersive visuals, Smoke Seekers is a mind-bending thriller that challenges audiences to confront the demons that lurk within us all.

Following the screening there will be a chance to chat about the themes of the film and the work explored during Hal’s residency.


Smoke Seekers delves into themes such as addiction, self-discovery, and the blurred lines between reality and hallucination. While the content is thought- provoking, it is presented in a manner suitable for teenage audiences.
