Join Redmond Entwistle 4pm, January 10 at the Bartos Theatre (E15 Lower Level), as he presents and discusses four of his film works created between 2000 and 2009. The works include:
- Belfast Trio (Tea at Four O’Clock/The Hollow Ball/The Apprentice), composed of three three-minute films, combines a soap opera scenario with footage of Belfast’s redevelopment efforts and interviews with professionals from its film and IT industries, precisely those creative economies through which the city hopes to draw investment.
- Satellite is composed of a broken tracking shot that traces the architecture around an intersection in Toronto, exploring the function of the storefront and gallery space in the economies of contemporary art.
- Paterson-Lodz considers the history of labor and immigration in Paterson, New Jersey and Lodz, Poland by exploring the role of these cities’ Jewish populations in the Lodz insurrection of 1905 and the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike.
- Social Visions uses interviews, panoramic photographs, and media reports to explore the layers and disjunctures in the experience and image of the city.
The event is free and all are welcome.
