FILMS IN THE PROGRAMME
Jaws 8 by Ian Helliwell, 2020
A sequel to the well-known Hollywood film series, shot on a smaller budget, and with a cast of unknowns, it nonetheless features the terrifying killer shark in spectacular 8mm close up. The music was created with a toy keyboard, Hellipad and several Hellitron tone generators.
Factory Talk by Lucie Rachel & Chrissie Hyde, 2020
Factory Talk is an intergenerational conversation about identity, sexuality and masculinity in a rural factory. Through the clanging of metal they make small talk, but as the gripes and grumbles testify to better times, the questions rising on the factory floor are of more than just nostalgia.
Magnetic Movie by Semiconductor, 2007
The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries. Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers’ produced by fleeting electrons. Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
Carrying Us by Elsa Monteith, Hazel Davis and Adam Laurence, 2021
Carrying Us is a collaborative project created by Elsa Monteith , Hazel Davis and Adam Laurence from the Lighthouse Young Creatives 2019-2020 cohort. As first-time filmmakers, they were guided through the process by their Story telling mentor Kitty Wallace and supported by Lighthouse to produce the film.
The concept of the film is focused on the idea of containment, inspired by their collective interest in The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, by author Ursula Le Guin. Through viewing the High Street as a vessel that contains both business and community, their film follows a journey into the high street via bus, and explores the experience of the high street from different perspectives. The film features layers of phone, camera and archive footage to represent different themes, and through narration and spoken word it aims to communicate that the essential aspects of people and community are at the core of the high street.
Down the Rabbit Hole by Merijn & Jurriaan Hos with sound design by Wilco Alkema, 2019
Video created for Down the Rabbit Hole festival.
