🌟 LAST CHANCE 🌟to enjoy two films by #UNTITLED artist NT in this special online film screening. 'Fox' and 'Mel's Lament' will be available to watch on our website until 15 September. 'Fox' is a 2-channel video installation exploring parallels between representations of the urban fox and that of ‘urban’ youth. The film deals with relationships – that of a young boy and a fox, and the boy’s interaction with his nocturnal urban environment. Filmed at night when the urban fox is most active and visible, the film focuses on the young boy’s nocturnal life, his interaction with his environment, and his association with the urban fox. 'Mel's Lament' (2017) is a modern-day interpretation of the story from Greek mythology of Philomela (or Philomel), who is raped and mutilated by her older sister’s husband Tereus. Philomel exacts her revenge on Tereus, the Greek gods take pity on her, and so that she can flee his wrath she is turned into a nightingale. The nightingale song which is sung once Philomel is a bird is often referred to as a lament. Click the link in our bio to watch both films.
