Anne Rees-Mogg (1924-1984) was a dedicated teacher and an active defender of 16mm film. Her films deal with time, memory, personal relations and the discovery of cinematography. This session presents a series of works that sketch out a short personal journey through the history of the cinema: from the pre-cinematographic devices of the magic lantern to a poetic tutorial about how to make experimental films, via the photography and the time and movement studies of Muybridge.
Our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the London Filmmakers’ Co-operative continues with this evening programmed by Anna La Thew and Steve Farrer.
"Steve and I were elected at the 1980 AGM and a life long friendship began. The 1980's were the start of film-makers being actively encouraged to publicise, exhibit, distribute and courier Co-op films, in person, internationally. We were committed to the Co-operative as an act of romantic resistance, its manifesto, its openness, its freedom and a lot of us were from up North.
