Thursday Late: Intermission #1

Thursday 19 August 2010, 6.30pm to 8.00pm

Wander into the wilderness for the first of our relaxed evenings of short film and video, and explore spaces and stories at the edges of nature.

Find a comfy spot, enjoy a cool drink and settle in for a selection of contemporary moving image and short film accompanied by experimental work from film history. The screening will take place in our Studio, with the backdrop of our temporary indoor Forest to set the scene.

There'll also be a chance to explore our current exhibition On Overgrown Paths by filmmaker Ben Rivers, where three ramshackle wooden cabins, assembled by the artist house flickering 16mm films revealing the lives of modern-day hermits living in isolated spots in Northern Europe.

Doors 6.00pm, films start from 6.30pm
