PoetryFilm at Tate Britain
Friday 7th November 2008, Tate Britain, Pimlico.
20.00-20.45 Screening and Discussion – what happens behind the scenes of a film?
A selection of PoetryFilms including an animation based on 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird by Wallace Stevens; a film by Billy Childish celebrating the life of Dadaist and bicyclist Kurt Schwitters; a film about love and the present directed by the subconscious; and also we go behind the scenes of a spying man with OCD who lives the same routine over and over – soundtrack by Aphex Twin.
Plus, at 8pm, a discussion about the processes of making PoetryFilms with directors of some of the films screened, and editors and writers who have featured at Cannes – chaired by Malgorzata Kitowski, director of PoetryFilm.
Tickets are free but must be collected from the Rotunda information desk – they will be available from 6pm.
