DOCMA, Abel Ganz and Groove On Radio

howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.
Welcome to the Howff, Bella’s lounge bar for the lockdown.

Tonight we have some tunes, some poetry and some film.

First up we have Docma – an international series of short films made in the lockdown. “5 filmmakers, 5 documentary styles, 1 film”.

We’ll showcase one collection a night. Tonight’s theme is SPACE.
