The Burden of Representation? Film screening and discussion

Pavilion presents: The Burden of Representation? Anna McLauchlan, Margaret Salmon & Janey Walklin

Hyde Park Picture House
73 Brudenell Road

This screening and discussion explores the social, ethical and aesthetic aspects of different modes of representation, focusing on the link between experimental documentary film practices and quantitative social studies such as the Index of Multiple Deprivation.

The occasion will bring together the films of artist-filmmakers Margaret Salmon (Glasgow) and Fine Art alumna Janey Walklin (Leeds) with contributions from Anna McLauchlan, Lecturer in Critical Human Geography at the University of Leeds.

The programme includes a rarely seen experimental documentary film made in 1981 by Walklin with users of the Ashwood Day Centre, Headingley, and Salmon’s recent film which uses Maslow’s Hierachy of Needs to portray the daily routines of a middle class family in Kent.

Following the screening there will be a discussion between Margaret Salmon and Anna McLauchlan.

Margaret Salmon: PYRAMID (17mins, 2014); NINNA NANNA (8min 2006)
Janey Walklin: FROM A TO DO (6min, 1994); SO TO SPEAK (14min, 1981)

Tickets free, donations welcome.
