The Big Screen and Film Gallery offers the opportunity to experience an exciting selection of work by artists, film makers and musicians in the woods at the Latitude Festival. This year’s line up focuses on the more radical movements within moving-image, sound and music. Including live performances of expanded cinema and newly commissioned, experimental art & music collaborations.
Live acts include DJ’s with their own style of audio-visual anarchy, from dance music innovator Phil Hartnoll (Orbital) to the legendary ‘Rebel Dread’ Don Letts. Also performing an eclectic mix of sound-tracks and moving image will be our resident DJ Harry K. Plus Paul Burgess will be screening and playing selections from his Punk and Reggae archive.
We present the very best of innovating video artists, film makers and sound artists, to include a selection from Unconcious Archives: an audio-visual, expanded cinema collective that transverse noise core and vision spectacle by James Holcombe & Sally Fielding, featuring Greg Pope.
There will also be a performance to light up the woodland area by the internationally acclaimed artist Ruth Proctor.
The programme of screenings will include works by: Cathy Sisler, Henry Hills, James Richards & Steve Reinke, Jeff Keen, Ian Helliwell, Marcus Coates, Dara Birnbaum, Brad Butler and Karen Mirza, The Otolith Group, Crass, Liz Rhodes, Joan Jonus, Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, Jim Hobbs, Mikhail Karikis and Uriel Urlow….amongst many others
