Video Strolls through Quiet Spaces

 

Video Strolls presents a collection of artists films made in, through and about Quiet Spaces.

Alleyways, back gardens, front rooms, lay-bys, meadows and public toilets – these short films range from documentaries, narrative fiction to more experimental, abstract works. As with all Video Strolls screenings there is plenty of humour along with the thoughtfulness.

New Town Utopia at Flatpack Film Festival

We’re excited to be back at Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival this year.

We’ll be showing Christopher Ian Smith’s New Town Utopia documentary.

Wednesday 18th April, 8pm to 10pm
Centrala, Unit 4 Minerva Works, 158 Fazerly Street, Birmingham B5 5RT

What happens when you try to build a town and construct a community? New Town Utopia tracks the lives of the residents (mostly artists) of Basildon, Essex.

Conceived as an ideal post-war arena to pursue a happier post-war existence, Basildon’s legacy has since fluctuated from slow structural and communal disintegration to a hotbed of creativity and back again. Through paintings, puppets and poetry, these enduring and passionate artists discuss utopian dreams as well as their concrete realities and, in doing so, explore the success of ‘the experiment of the new town.’ This screening will include a short slide performance, Tower/Garden by artist Libby Cufley.

Tickets £7, £5 concessions.
