Short film and accompanying interviews created from Sheffield Festival of the Mind
To quote the festival’s press:
“Mike Futcher and Mark Gwynne Jones’s short film is a gothic thriller about a man who thinks the voices in his head are coming from his teeth. His quest to extract them (eek!) leads to a shocking revelation.
Based on Gwynne Jones’s narrative poem, the film mixes live action and animation to brilliantly unsettling effect. A rare exponent of dentistry noir, it asks the big question: what is behind consciousness?
In the accompanying documentary, The Making of 13 Teeth, Sheffield academics talk us through some of the film’s most striking images, including skeletons, nerves and teeth.
The film is unsuitable for young children.”
