A major new moving image commission by filmmakers Adam Khalil and Bayley Sweitzer.
Acclaimed for their science-fiction political thrillers set against a backdrop of racialised police brutality and mass surveillance, their films combine camcorder footage and pro-shot video, digital animation and drone imaging. Multiple sources and formats are weaved together into kaleidoscopic experiences that subvert traditional forms of storytelling through the excavation of subterranean histories and an engagement with indigenous worldviews, queer energies and minoritarian politics.
Adam Khalil is an artist and filmmaker from the Ojibway tribe born in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan; and Bayley Sweitzer is a filmmaker from Southern Vermont. Recent screenings include the Museum of Modern Art, Anthology Film Archives, and e-flux in New York; the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis); LACMA, Los Angeles and Tate Modern, London. Their works have also featured at the Whitney Biennial, Toronto Biennial and Sundance Film Festival and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.
Commissioned and produced by Gasworks, London and Spike Island, Bristol, as part of the European Cooperation project 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture, co-funded by Creative Europe and the Royal College of Art.
