Three artists film screenings around the idea of bad guests programmed by LUX
The films range from a fictional story about a half-constructed house occupied by squatters (who may also be ghosts), to a video diary by a Czech filmmaker living with his parents, and a damning documentary portrait of tourists in Papua New Guinea. What they all have in common are people who, deliberately or otherwise, are stretching hospitality to its limits.
Emily Wardill / UK / 2012 / 82mins
Emily Wardill's latest feature-length film, Fulll Firearms narrates the story of Imelda, a woman in her forties who inherits a fortune from her father, an arms manufacturer.
The film tells of how Imelda sets out to build a house to host the ghosts of the people killed by the products of her father's business. As she builds the house, a number of people begin to move in and squat the house, whom Imelda believes to be the ghosts.
Based on the life of Sarah Winchester and the Winchester Mystery House the film articulates, in the tradition of the melodrama, issues of displacement, storytelling, and the difficulties of communication.
