A panel discussion chaired by Bristol Experimental and Expanded Film (BEEF), with screenings of historical and contemporary works. Part of BRFF 2015 – celebrating 40 years of radical British cinema.
We will debate how the radical political gesture of British Structural/Materialism of the 1960s and ’70s might be reframed in a contemporary context, and will consider the legacy of these early films in a digital world. The event will be accompanied by a screening of films by Guy Sherwin and Lis Rhodes alongside contemporary works by BEEF members Stephen Cornford, Louisa Fairclough and Vicky Smith. These recent works re-examine the autonomy of film practice that was central to 1970s’ Structural/Materialism to insist upon the situated and particularised body of the filmmaker.
All BRFF 2015 screenings are included in the Festival Pass
