  • Artist Talk & Screening: Jayne Wilson

    Wednesday 1 March, 6-7.30pm

    Inherent Process

    Artist, filmmaker Jayne Wilson will discuss the her work and influences as well as the selected artists films as part of Fabrica’s window screenings.

    Programmed by Jayne Wilson the screening of artists films highlights the artistic processes and different artistic voices that emerge from shared themes and structures. From the experimental process of working to the montage of photofilm and the juncture between analogue and digital.

    Jayne Wilson produces carefully researched films that tread a line between the informative and the playful. Often dominated by a fascination with the inventions of the modern industrial age her films draw on a prevailing interest in archive imagery and montage.

    Her films have screened at galleries and festivals including WRO Media Art Biennale (Poland), The Anthology Film Archive (New York), Cinecity and London Short Film Festival among others.

  • Film at Fabrica: Orlando (Queer Dreams season)

    15 March 2017

    Across four centuries, one figure strides, androgynous, beautiful, shapeshifting: Orlando.

    Sally Potter’s seminal adaptation sees Tilda Swinton take on the eponymous role created by queer author Virginia Woolf.

    Swinton plays a young noble who is instructed by Queen Elizabeth I (Quentin Crisp) to stay forever young. When, magically, the queen’s wishes are realised, Orlando embarks on a variegated life that spans across centuries and sees the character inhabit both male and female genders. An angel (played by gay pop icon Jimmy Somerville) serenades us as we sink into the pageantry of this singular classic of British cinema, watching as Swinton effortlessly spans time, physicality and desire.

  • Film at Fabrica: Ali: Fear Eats The Soul (Queer Dreams season)

    21 April 2017

    The rain is unrelenting and the middle-aged woman needs shelter, so she steps in to a bar playing Arabic music. A handsome young Moroccan man asks her to dance, and from this unexpected proposition, an electric connection is sparked.

    Evoking the work of queer auteur Douglas Sirk in both its aesthetic and its astute social commentary, Fassbinder explores love and desire across the boundaries of age and race. Ali being played by the director’s own romantic partner El Hedi ben Salem imbues this masterpiece film with further queer significance.
