Berlin Golden Bear-winning director Peter Mackie Burns allows the audience access to the private lives of disparate groups of characters who reside in the city of Glasgow.
We are privy to their conversations, private moments and everyday occurrences in a piece that often makes for uncomfortable and even voyeuristic viewing.
Accompanied by the ambient music of Sigur Ros, the city takes on a character of its' own as we follow their lives through an ever-changing landscape, and life is examined from cradle to grave.
Come Closer is about change, the constant flux that happens to people and places, and how that change affects their relationships. Crossing boundaries of age, sex, class and religion, it causes the audience to reconsider the everyday in their own lives.
Aye, a sort of visual one.
Certainly - if you care to look closely enough.
Icelandic post rockers Sigur Ros feature with two marvellous tracks here 'Ny Batteri' from their Agaetis Byrjun album and untitled # 7 from their 2002 "()" album.
