To see and think the world as a totality has never been more crucial thanks to the present global environmental crisis. This three-part programme will bring together historical and contemporary films about ‘the world’ with the aim of exploring the divergences and continuities between audiovisual representations of the Earth past and present. From narratives of colonialism and internationalism through to end-of-the-world mythologies and the Anthropocene discourse, these films show that the history of cinema is inseparable from a quest to imagine the world as a totality.
A workshop jointly organised by the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), University of Westminster and Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival, and hosted by Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image (BIMI) + curated shorts programme.

A pioneer of experimental cinema, the Los Angeles artist Pat O’Neill developed innovative techniques for radically altering imagery in the predigital era. His highly inventive 16mm films from the 1960s and 1970s explore dense layering and movement within a still frame. In recent years, O’Neill has reworked several of his early films into multiple projections.
