Films to Die For: Wim Wenders and the Death of Glauber Rocha [PILOT] (Lúcia Nagib)

This essay film revolves around Wim Wenders’ The State of Things (1982), an emblematic cinephilic film that brings Hollywood and European cinemas together in a passionate, but ill-fated, affair, fed on allusion and self-reflexivity.

Creative Geography, Creative Connections: Candyman (John Gibbs)

An audiovisual essay foregrounding creative connections and overlooked histories in the relationships between a number of films, their creators and the spaces and social contexts with which they interact. Making use of a concept map, the video centres on Candyman (Rose, 1992) and its ‘spiritual sequel’, Candyman (DaCosta, 2021).

something is Happening (Christine Ellison)

This film documents a residency at the Bonotto Foundation in Veneto, Italy, home to the Bonotto Collection of Fluxus scores and concrete poetry. Here, Christine collaborated with filmmaker Robbie McKane (UoR Art and Film & Theatre graduate) and an international team of designers, dancers and musicians, in the development of a live performance and documentary, in which experimental scores from the collection become access points to open up critical questions around digital devices and the language of the interface.

Green Hills and Fresh Fish [WORK IN PROGRESS] (Adam O’Brien)

An experimental documentary, bringing together an audio recording of a poetry seminar (exploring Roger Robinson’s ‘A Portable Paradise’) with images taken by the photographer Peter Adams, sourced from the MERL archive. It probes the relationship between spectacle and language in our conceptions of better worlds (and how these worlds might work).
