|Marine Hugonnier - Film Screening and In-Conversation|
||25 Frames - Film and Video Umbrella 25 year anniversary|
22 January 2014
6.40 pm, Hackney Picture House, London
In this special screening, Marine Hugonnier will show the much acclaimed Ariana, shot in Afghanistan in 2002, and most recent film Apicula Enigma (2013), alongside other works. After the screening Hugonnier will be joined in conversation with Filipa Ramos.
Marine Hugonnier makes essay films in which the lines between fiction and documentary are both questioned and blurred. Often recording a journey, her films take time to examine the cultural context of a particular place or subject and the politics of the imagery she generates. Her films are tools for critical thinking and an attempt to define another kind of experience - an experience of images through the world rather than the world through images.
Filipa Ramos is a curator and art critic based in Milan and London. She is currently curator of Vdrome, and Lecturer at Central Saint Martins (Art: Moving Image and Art: Exhibition Studies) and at Kingston University (Film Theory). She was Curator of Research Section dOCUMENTA (13), Associate Editor of Manifesta Journal, and Public Programmes curator at the Antonio Ratti Foundation in Como. Ramos is the co-author of the book Lost and Found - Crisis of Memory in Contemporary Art (Silvana editoriale, Milan, 2009), has been guest curator on many public and private art spaces, and is a regular contributor for several international publications.
The event falls within 25 Frames, Film and Video Umbrella's anniversary programme of screenings and special events, in which stand-out pieces from the organisation's past are re-staged and re-evaluated for the present.
