3 July 2012
Looking In, Looking Out Day 6
1800 Suitcase Cinema
An image and light beam installation
The Suitcase Cinema invites Looking In, Looking Out audiences to interrupt the projected light emanating from two 16mm projectors. The projectors will face each other. The projectors’ beams will meet on a thin material, which will partition the room into two areas. One area will contain an image. The other will be simply white light. Members of the public are invited to step across the beams’ path, and observe others on the opposing part of the partition simultaneously forming part of the ‘other’ image, using their silhouette.
1830 Bidisha leads a high-kicking whirl through Hollywood history and a celebration of the brilliant women who co-founded Hollywood, with film experts, critics, Old Hollywood fans and film lovers Jenny Hammerton, Muriel Zagha, Pamela Hutchinson and Kira Cochrane.
2000 Sunset Boulevard (1950) Gloria Swanson's career-defiing performance in Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett's Oscar-winning tragic tale of a star in decline. As much a reflection on the idea of Hollywood itself, as it is on love and loss.
Doors at 6pm. Tickets from the link below.
