SATURDAY 4 MARCH 2023
5:00 – 10:00PM – FILM SCREENINGS WITH POP & POPCORN SERVED FROM THE THAMESMEAD TEXAS ART BAR!
Finn Rabbitt Dove/ Vendor Beast
Vendor Beast explores cross species relationships, nostalgia and loss, in a world of increasingly manufactured landscapes. Footage of children, almost in flight, with captive polar bears becomes a dystopian analogy of the 1982 animation, The Snowman.
Ryan Powell/ Gasljus
In collaboration with composers Jakob Lindhagen & Dag Rosenqvist.
Dust and ash role in, filling the streets of the former city with the memory of distant fires. The land has retreated and on the banks of an ever-looming Thames, a heron hunts as London’s last glass spires disappear into the silt.
Eva Lis/ The Shape of Light
The film is a series of still images that the artist took during the lockdown in Thamesmead in April 2020, using pinhole photography. Exposing photographic paper directly to light Eva captured the beauty of the surroundings in abstract frames.
Riordan Tyson/ Sunflowers of Crossway Park
Sunflowers Symphony: A psychedelic depiction of the sunflowers at Crossway Park.
Comfort Adeneye/ A Month of Sundays
A short analog film drama that honors social realism and slow cinema styles. With experimental use of montage as a narrative form and sound design, the audience is presented with a passionate and emotionally dense story of boyhood exploration.
