Archive collections are treasure troves for magpie filmmakers, with artists increasingly adept at remixing and re-appropriating existing footage for poetic or political effect. Jenna Collins and Sam Meech join Marion Hewitt, Director of the North West Film Archive, for a discussion exploring the challenges and opportunities for artists engaging with moving image archives.
This event follows on from both Jenna and Sam’s residencies at the North West Film Archive. For more information on their work visit their residency blog here.
The Gleaners in Conversation is part of Abandon Normal Devices, produced by Cornerhouse, FACT and folly. See the full programme on the AND festival website.
