Barbicania screening

By | Events, News

Barbicania is a feature-length film capturing a month long immersion in the life of the Barbican Centre and Estate in London, one of the most representative achievements of brutalist architecture.

Drawing an intimate human map of the place, the film questions the durability of this post…

Recording Small Worlds: Gjakova

By | News, Workshops

During 24 hours in Gjakova, (10am to 10am) we will discuss, create, and present films about places in the city which allow one to withdraw from the public gaze—however momentarily, and be alone. Not metaphorically, but actual places, outside of the home, that provide cover. These places change from day to night. Participants must explore the city by time of day. Participants will fan out across the town and make short films using their phone cameras and device-based editing tools. We will screen the results for an audience on Sunday. Interview and the presentation of facts is encouraged but not…

What would we choose to include in the digital realm and what would…
