Description

A flipbook might look like an ordinary but unusually shaped book, but appearances can be deceptive. Open it, flip its pages and you'll see a miniature movie. In Germany, home of Volker Gerling, the word for flipbook is Daumenkino – literally thumb-cinema. Gerling walked 4,000km in 15 years, photographing those he met along the way. He compiles these portraits into flipbooks which capture magical everyday encounters. Gerling returns to Edinburgh with his Total Theatre Award winning show, featuring old favourites and new faces: a gentle meeting of cinema, photography and story. 'Disarmingly beautiful' (Sydney Morning Herald).
