The Dwoskin Project

This is the website of the Dwoskin Project, a three-year investigation into the life and work of the filmmaker Stephen Dwoskin, based at the University of Reading.

Separately, you can view his own website, set up before his death in 2012, here. A selection of his films is available to stream from the BFI here. The project’s Twitter feed is here. We are also on Instagram.

We have published an introduction to Dwoskin's first four major films, to accompany their recent launch on the LUXPLAYER website.

We have recently mounted three streaming events in association with the LUX and Reading's Centre for Film Aesthetics and Cultures, under the rubric Dwoskin, disability, and….

The discussions that followed the first two screenings – of Face of Our Fear (1992) and Intoxicated By My Illness (2001) – are available on the CFAC website here. The discussions that followed the third, Trying to Kiss the Moon (1994), is on the LUX website here.

The project publishes a monthly blogpost, also on the LUX website. The most recent one is about the making of Trying to Kiss the Moon.

In February 2022 the project will mount a Dwoskin retrospective at BFI Southbank, as part of which there will be a day of talks – please see our Call For Papers here.

Join us in late September for Alt+Shift+Archive: unpacking the past, present and future of digital archive, an online digital archiving symposium, situating 'real world' archiving in the context of academic and creative work.
