Join us on Thursday 29 October for the full programme of Film London Jarman Award 2020 films, streaming on-demand between 12pm–0.00am, plus a Q&A at 6.30pm with artists Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings.
This year’s Film London Jarman Award tour sees the best in contemporary artists’ filmmaking taken on a virtual tour to venues across the UK from 24 September to 15 November 2020.
Featuring work from the artists shortlisted for the 2020 Film London Jarman Award, the tour offers art and film lovers the chance to explore a diverse and exciting range of work, from Larissa Sansour’s two-channel black and white sci-fi film to Jenn Nkiru’s exploration of the black history of techno music.
Stories take us from Michelle Williams Gamaker’s reimagining of the 1947 Powell and Pressburger film, Black Narcissus, to an exploration of the rapid gentrification of Birmingham’s Gay Village by Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings. A groundbreaking film by Project Art Works crosses boundaries between culture and care as they work with neurodivergent artists and makers and Andrea Luka Zimmerman’s cine-poem Civil Rites looks at the enduring subjects of poverty, racism and war through the voices of Newcastle residents.
