The twin channels of the River Lee create a defined centre
to the city. It is the heart. Alongside the new developments
that have taken place sit buildings of character. It is a dynamic area not only in terms of the historical breadth of the architecture of the buildings that occupy this space but also in the way the area is utilised by the people. From early morning and late into the night the city is alive and vibrant with the constant pulse of business
As night falls, and against this backdrop, the Hamburg-based short-film activist group of A Wall Is A Screen will take us on a guided tour of the city, albeit one like no other. Equipped with a projector, a generator and a small sound system they will project short films of various
genres onto regular walls. After each film the group continues on to the next wall and film.
As a film night, the project has surprising effects. A film corresponds with the screening location and the screening location with the film. The location and passers-by seem to interact with the film, become part of it. Street noises have an impact on the action of the film/plot.
As punk rock as film exhibition gets – Simon Ellis, Filmmaker.
|A Wall Is A Screen is free and all are welcome.
The tour will commence in Emmet Place on Tuesday 16th October at 7.30pm
We expect the tour to last around 90 minutes.
