£7 / £5, The Box
A portrait of 1970’s New York City, punctuated by a monologue of letters from the filmmaker’s mother, alluding to the loneliness and isolation of the big city.
Part of Another Version of Events, the film programme for Liverpool Biennial 2016; a selection of films inspired by sci-fi, mockumentary, pseudo-documentary, mockbuster and ethnofiction.
After the film, there will also be a screening of Raphael Hefti’s An Aluminothermic Reaction Producing Liquid Steel, Filmed at 2000 Frames per Second (2016). The film is is a new artwork by Hefti, that continues his experiments in thermite welding - an engineering process devised in 1893, still used in the assembly of high-speed railway tracks today. Over the course of two weeks in May 2016, the artist transported nearly 100 tonnes of sand to the former construction site of the Pullman Hotel, transforming it into an outdoor studio and make-shift film set. The result is an intimate, near-hallucinatory work that oscillates between the industrial and the digital.
