The Nine Muses Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

John Akomfrah, perhaps best known for his work with the Black Audio Film Collective and the groundbreaking Handsworth Songs, delivers a beguiling personal exploration of the UK's immigrant experience from 1949 - 1970.

Part documentary, part existential sci-fi film, Akomfrah combines archive footage and striking arctic landscapes to unusual and genre-defying effect.

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.
