Wall, i — film screening
- Date: Thursday 19 September 2019, 18:30 – 20:30
- Location: Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies
- Cost: Free
As part of this year's MA Fine Art Degree Show — Becoming After — you are invited to attend a screening of a film project developed by graduating artist John Ledger.
This multi-disciplinary and collaborative film project is an autoethnographical exorcism, for a generation whose formative years happened 30 years ago as the Berlin wall fell.
Wall, i plays around with some of the themes in Pink Floyd’s The Wall (on its 40th anniversary), for a ‘millennial’ generation reared on promises of a future where they could be whatever they wanted to be.
Scripted by songs, Wall, i is a character who becomes trapped in himself as promises start to crumble; unable to connect, he falls into mental ill-health, spells of addiction, bitter resent and hatred.
This screening is free to attend but booking is advisable as places are limited. Please book your place here via Eventbrite.
Note: this film contains some adult themes and references. Older children are advised to be accompanied. May be unsuitable for minors.
