Film Overview

This year’s film programme will reveal the earth’s layers, from the drone’s eye view to deep into subterranean fear-inducing bunkers. The programme will be a poetic reflection on the verticality of the earth and how this is rendered. It will feature a selection of rare archival footage, artist’s film, VR and digital reconstruction techniques from archaeologists Dr Alice Watterson and Kieran Baxter. We will also be showing little known classics from Werner Herzog and Busby Berkeley, moving image artists Pierre Bismuth, Emma Charles and Hito Steyerl, and forensic analysis from Laura Poitras, Henrik Moltke and Josh Begley. We will take you on a journey from satellite imagery to the wild underground.
