Movement are a trio from Sydney, Australia, slowly inching out of the shadows and into the light with the Spring release of their self-titled EP. Since unveiling their debut Morgan Geist (Storm Queen/Metro Area) mixed singles, Jesse Ward, Lewis Wade
and Sean Walker have played a string of headline shows in Australia, as well as touring alongside Solange and DARKSIDE.
Their second single Us has clocked up over half a million plays each on YouTube and Soundcloud, while Pitchfork ordained it Best New Track. Live, Jesse and Sean balance lush, atmospheric production with live instrumentation that pushes them beyond the trappings of most electronic acts. This rich foundation sets the stage for the soulful, aching vocals of Lewis – his voice, somewhat restrained on the recordings, emerges live as a massive emotional centerpiece. The 4-track, self-titled EP will be out mid-Spring and the group will be taking their live
show on the road internationally to support its release.

The debut feature from Toronto's Kazik Radwanski, Tower is a stylistically rigorous and captivating character study of Derek, a loner who still lives at home and seems unable to leave the world he's constructed around him. Having already garnered hype from screenings at Locarno, Telluride, and TIFF, we're happy to present it at this year's Sled Island.

Director's Bio: Kazik Radwanski was born in Toronto in 1985. He studied filmmaking at Ryerson University and co-founded the production company MDFF. His films screened at the Berlinale Shorts Competition for three consecutive years with Princess Margaret Blvd. (2008), Out in that Deep Blue Sea (2009) and Green Canyons (2010). Tower is Radwanski's debut feature film.
