Soft Space Florrie James

2—6pm, Sunday 21 May 2017

A discussion event about film production and making films that sit within non-exploitative, non-hierarchical, feminist, anti-copyright contexts.

Florrie James will present recent research and experiments in film production. She will show the development of a narrative feature film she is currently working on with writer and musician Sam Bellacosa called 4 Day Weekend Underground which involves a large amount of improvised film production.

By analysing extracts from film-makers manifestos, including statements from Humberto Solás’ Cinema Povre manifesto; Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto for Maintenance Art; Maya Deren’s writings about film and noise musician Mattin’s two books, Unconstituted Praxis and Noise and Capitalism, the group will explore what it might take to make a film that sits firmly within a structure of communally inhabited explorative space rather than existing purely as an individualist art object.

Soft Space is an event series offering artists and participants a space to reflect, discuss and experiment, from amongst and within
process, rather than about or around it.

This event is free to attend, however places are limited. Please email if you would like to come along and to reserve a place. Food and refreshments will be provided.
