Taking the ideas of ‘pulse’ and ‘place’, the Royal Philharmonic Society pairs Dobrinka Tabakova’s rich musical language with Ruth Paxton’s bold film-making to create PULSE
, a noir-like, expressionistic short about peril, rescue and the basic human need to connect.
Set in central Glasgow, PULSE follows two strangers who share a brief, yet profound exchange that evokes sympathy, understanding, recognition and hope. Within our busy lives, within our cosmopolitan cities with their mix of cultures, humanity still connects.
