In the Kingdom of Shadowsfilm • 19 Nov 2011
Zoe Beloff will be in conversation with leading British film theorist Laura Mulvey. Laura Mulvey has changed the way we think about film and the experience of watching. Join Mulvey and Beloff as they discuss some of the ideas behind Zoe’s work.
Join us for a one-off screening of films by Beloff followed by the discussion. The screening will include of Beloff’s stereoscopic, 3D 16mm films exploring the prehistory of cinema, not simply from the point of view of technology but from a psychic perspective; how the projection of images grew out of the desire to manifest the unconscious. “Shadow Land or Light from the Other Side” is based on the 1897 autobiography of Elizabeth d’Esperance, an English medium who could conjure up full body apparitions. “Charming Augustine” is inspired by series of photographs and texts on hysteria published by the great insane asylum in Paris in the 1880s under the title of the Iconographie photographique de la Salpetriere.
