No Longer Showing.
A program of three moving image works consisting of John Smith’s Blight (1994–96), Charles Atlas and Karole Armitage’s From An Island Summer (1983–84), and People Mover (2017) by Marte Eknæs and Michael Amstad. Utilizing distinct visual languages, the three films are connected through the topics of the constructed urban space, movement, and flexibility. The program is a journey through different emotional states and atmospheres, guided by each film’s compelling use of soundscapes and music. This program was curated by Eknæs and Amstad for Grüner Salon, Volksbühne in Berlin last March, and this is the first screening of People Mover in the US.
