A collaboration between artists Karen Mirza and Brad Butler and author China Miéville. It is an audacious, semi-fantastic history of the opposing forces of popular protest and clandestine control told through archive material, contemporary footage and future speculation.
Commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella. Funded by Arts Council England and London Councils.
Featuring a Q&A with the filmmakers.
About the Biennial Film Programme
As part of The Unexpected Guest, FACT and the Liverpool Biennial present one of the most ambitious programmes of contemporary artist film ever seen in Liverpool, all of which are inspired by the Biennial's theme of Hospitality.
Through a series of weekly film screenings, Q&A sessions, and film forums, we present a survey of contemporary practice in artist film and video focusing on the recent propensity of artists to work in the medium to feature-length format.
