add void


Next Wednesday, the ICA are screening Strange Lights, the new film by Joe King and Rosie Pedlow, alongside a retrospective of their earlier work, including the Jerwood Moving Image Award-winning Sea Change. I came across this a couple of years ago and was immediately and utterly entranced by its haunting mood and technical brilliance. Ostensibly nothing more than a tracking shot through a seaside caravan park, the film steadily and rhythmically manipulates time and light, evoking a dream-world all the more eerie for its base in reality. If you fancy five minutes of escape this afternoon I couldn’t recommend anything better.

The ICA talk takes place next Wednesday 12th at 6.30 pm. Details here.
