Unravel returns to Manchester on Saturday 26th May at the Chinese Arts Centre in the Northern Quarter area of the city to compliment their current exhibition 'Sixty Minute Cinema' which is a six week changing video programme. As ever, we will create, manipulate and screen a 16mm film made entirely by participants during the three hour workshop which runs on a drop-in/drop-out basis between 2 and 5pm. Chris will be leading the workshop.
Other events to look out for this week in Manchester include FutureEverything , our friends Optic Film Screenings and Swing Ting clubnight to whom Chris has just directed a music video and who's trailer is available here.
You can also finish off the the saturday night by watching the Eurovision Song Contest, we'll be cheering for Greta Salóme, the Icelandic entry this year - Chris worked with her in his residency in Skálholt in 2010 and she took part in the pre-Unravel workshop session written about here (our first entry on this blog, no less)...Good luck Greta!
Last tip of the week, if you are lucky enough to find a screening of Ben Rivers' Two Years at Sea (all shot and self-processed on Kodak Plus-X Black and White 16 mm Film stock) still playing at a cinema near you and need the extra push to go see... here's the push.
