  • William Raban - 72-82

    The first ten years of the groundbreaking London arts organisation ACME are explored through rarely seen archival film and new interviews.

    ‘Raban's bold new film continues his ongoing examination of London's stratified social geography by exploring a fertile, creative scene in which he played a significant part. Solely using archival visual materials, he revisits the first ten years of art organisation ACME, highlighting its work in housing artists in the East End and the extraordinary work that was produced. The powerful archival footage incorporates Stephen Cripps' pyrotechnic displays, an abrasive Anne Bean music performance and Stuart Brisley's politically charged action 'Ten Days'. Interviewees include: Cosey Fanni Tutti, Jock McFadyen and David Critchley. Raban reflects on the nature of 'evidence' while a very particular vision of creative activity emerges - one based on devoted experimentation, location specificity and process.’ (William Fowler, London Film Festival)

  • Bill Morrison: Selected Films 1996-2014

    Over the past twenty years, Bill Morrison has built a filmography of more than thirty striking and original works which have been presented in cinemas, museums, galleries and concert halls worldwide. Making use of rare archival footage, which has often been decayed by the passing of time, Morrison explores the power of film as a medium which is evocative of memory and gives rise to a sense of collective mythology. Morrison's exquisite and timeless films are scored by the cream of the US underground / avant-garde music scene, including Dave Douglas, Henryk Górecki and Bill Frisell.

  • The films of Jack Chambers

    This 3-volume set brings together for the first time the complete film works of Jack Chambers (1931-78), largely regarded as one of Canada’s most important visual artists. With a well-established career as a painter, he embarked on a short-lived but significant career as a filmmaker in the mid-1960s. Chambers’ artistic practice was described as “perceptual realism” and stood in counterpoint to the dominant abstract styles of his day. He completed five films in his lifetime.
