Our annual celebration of the alt-wonderful world of artist film is crammed with special guests, premieres and discussions. We launch with artist Clara Casian and musician Robin Richard’s new collaboration, Birdsong – Stories from Pripyat, featuring footage captured in the famously abandoned ‘ghost city’ adjacent to the Chernobyl Power Plant blended with archive material and unique soundtrack by a live quartet.
We’ll be welcoming Boston-based video artist Luther Price for a rare retrospective of his groundbreaking practice, present a focus on contemporary Finnish Video Art, screen work by artists Oreet Ashery, Rob Crosse, Basim Magdy, Manchester film collective FOOMOO, host a workshop on curating artist film, plus the North West premiere of the brilliantly bizarro feature La Distancia and Q&A with director Sergio Caballero.
