Unravel returned to Leeds for a workshop at Armley Mills Industrial Museum, in partnership with Miniciné. As well as charting Leeds’ industrial past, the museum also has a collection of ciné equipment dating from the turn of the twentieth century onwards. There’s also an exhibit on Louis le Prince, who shot the first ever frames of film on Leeds Bridge in 1888. And to top that, the museum has the smallest cinema in the north of England – the fixtures and fittings were reclaimed from the former Armley Picture Palace Hall (built in 1912, closed in 1964).
It was great to run this workshop in collaboration with Miniciné, who run a monthly screening at Armley Mills. Thanks to Edel and Danny, and to all the participants who came along to work on the film. The workshop film was screened in the “mini” cinema just before the main feature, Saturday Night, Sunday Morning.
