Free Screening & Panel Discussion

Jan 20th 2014 - 10:45 am - 5:00 pm


Screening of La Région Centrale, 1970-71 by Michael Snow

Monday 20 January, 10.45am – 2.00pm

Arts Picturehouse Cinema, Cambridge

Running time: 190 minutes

A rare opportunity to see Canadian film-maker Michael Snow's seminal experimental film, filmed from a remote mountaintop in Quebec.

I would like to make a three-hour film "orchestrating" all the possibilities of camera movement and the various relationships between it and what is being photographed... I give the camera an equal role in the film to what is being photographed. I want to make a gigantic landscape film equal in terms to the great landscape paintings of Cezanne, Poussin, Corot, Monet, Matisse ... this will feel like a record of the last wilderness on earth, a film to be taken into outer space as a souvenir of what nature once was.

Michael Snow, 1969

Panel Discussion 3.00-5.00pm, Department of Earth Sciences, Downing Site

Hannah Rickards (artist), Jason Dungan (artist), Graham Ellard (Professor of Fine Art at Central Saint Martins) and Neil Henderson (Principal Lecturer for Film and Media at Anglia Ruskin University) will discuss their responses to the film.

Refreshments provided. Booking Essential: maeve@contemporaryartsociety.org

This is a North West Cambridge Art Programme Event and is an outcome of the artist Hannah Rickard's yearlong residency with University of Cambridge's Earth Sciences department.
