My feature film Whale Skull (2019) will receive its first ever projection this week as part of the exhibition Luminous Void: Twenty Years of Experimental Film Society at Project Arts Centre, Dublin.
Luminous Void: Twenty Years of Experimental Film Society is an overview of the twenty-year history of Experimental Film Society (EFS). Through an exhibition and event series, it explores the unique, defiant and influential trail that EFS has blazed through the landscape of contemporary Irish moving image. Full details can be found here.
Whale Skull will screen on loop in the exhibition's Cinema Room between the 20th and 26th of May. Entry is free but booking is essential. Audience sizes are limited and places are going fast.
Whale Skull was made to mark the 20th anniversary of Experimental Film Society. Set in the near future, it sifts the fragments of an imploded cinematic landscape in the search for clues to move forward. Shifting back and forth through flashbacks of impending cataclysm and its eerie aftermath, this broiling collage mixes viscerally playful bargain basement sci-fi with a lyrical consideration of personal experimental cinema. This film includes contributions from other EFS filmmakers as a celebration of this group's collaborative spirit. Short Super-8 sequences by Atoosa Pour Hosseini, Vicky Langan, Michael Higgins and Jann Clavadetscher are included along with additional material by Rouzbeh Rashidi.
