For our 'Art, Class and Politics: Explorations through Film' programme, with Film Curator Alice Butler, we will be screening a series of films created by artists, or focusing on aspects of art practice, on selected Friday lunchtimes between April and September.

Film Details

Autoficción by Laida Lertxundi

USA, Spain, New Zealand, 2020

14 minutes, Colour

Borrowing its title from a literary genre, the film acknowledges the indeterminacy of both fiction and the self. Noir elements are reduced to deadpan gestures under bright California sunlight. Field recordings made in New Zealand are heard as women speak with each other about motherhood, abortion, breakups and anxiety. A civil rights parade moves slowly down a street. Bodies appear in states of weariness, injured or at rest, while songs by Irma Thomas and Goldberg evoke the passing of time and an uncertain future.

Free! Booking can be done here or come on the day, subject to availability!

All screenings take place in Gallery 18.

Further information on other films in the programme can be found on our website
