Join us for a screening of a programme of short films by artists Daniel & Clara from their Studio Diary Series (2018–19). Presented by the artists.
The Studio Diaries began as a series of 100 short films created by Daniel & Clara throughout 2018. Over the course of seven months, these short films capture the workings of the artists’ daily creative practice, but more than simply documenting, the Studio Diariesare creative thought in action. Each film is an investigation into the language of moving images, exploring how narrative and meaning are constructed through the relationship between sound and image.
For this screening Daniel & Clara will be presenting a selection of shorts taken from the first 100 films followed by the latest instalment SD103: Snakes & Ladders. This is an experimental video essay responding to the films and writing of British feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey, and film theorist and filmmaker Peter Wollen.
FREE, booking required.
Daniel & Clara, two humans one artist, have been working together since 2010 on moving image and performance. To date they have made over 150 films, including nine feature-length films. Alongside their work as artists, they regularly programme screenings in the UK and abroad, and publish Film Panic Magazine, a publication dedicated to contemporary artists’ moving image and experimental film. They also run the Moving Image Salon, a gathering for artists working with moving image to meet, share and discuss their work, which takes place monthly at the Film and Video Umbrella in London.
microcinema is a key arm of the Cambridge Film Festival, showcasing a wide range of experimental, avant-garde and independent film both contemporary and historical.
This year’s microcinema will bring together artist filmmakers, writers and curators to present an innovative, interactive and interlinked programme of free screenings, talks, an installation and a round table discussion in venues across the city.
Check the Cambridge Film Festival website from late September for information about microcinema screenings at other venues.
