I’m chairing a panel discussion with Jane & Louise Wilson and Esther Leslie on Tuesday 18th December 8.30pm at Regent Street Cinema reflecting on early cinema and the Wilsons’ recent moving image work. The event is programmed by Film and Video Umbrella and tickets can be bought HERE. More information below.
In honour of Regent Street Cinema’s formative place in cinema history, Film and Video Umbrella and the University of Westminster’s Centre for Research in Art and Media (CREAM), present this special screening of two videos by the acclaimed artists Jane and Louise Wilson.
Undead Sun and We Put The World Before You look back at the aftermath of the First World War, and the huge technological and cultural transformations it brought in its wake. But the films also return us to the early days of cinema, and its new ways of seeing (and surveying) the world, in particular the films of the popular documentarist Charles Urban, which will also form part of the screening programme. Jane and Louise will discuss their work and the legacy of early cinema and its technologies.
