Screening of edited highlights at the Chisenhale Gallery on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November

We are thrilled to be able to invite you all to a special weekend this saturday and sunday at the Chisenhale Gallery in East London to screen some of the edited interviews and films from our workshops so far. Come at any time between 13.00 and 18.00 to find out what some of our participants have offered in their perspectives on the places they have live whilst enjoying the filmic results generated at their respective workshops.
The Chisenhale is located in Mile End, East London near Victoria Park - a map of the location can be found by following the link below:

"In December 2010, Chisenhale Gallery hosted one of the seventy five national workshops entitled Unravel – the longest hand painted film in Britain, where participants were invited to paint, scratch and directly manipulate 16mm film.
Harking back to the direct animation techniques of Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Stan Brakhage these marked traces of multiple authors represent diverse demographics of the British people wherein each frame of the film represents one metre in the 874 mile distance between Land’s End and Jon O’Groats. Sound recordings, interviews and perspectives on each location have been collected and compiled– mapping a metaphorical journey through collective memory and identity. The collaged autobiographical oral accounts which speak of individual experience in different locations, times and spaces offer a non-linear, psycho-geographical exploration of the country made for and by the people of Britain."
