OTHER SCREENINGS DURING ART WALK PORTY
'SUNSET REPORTS' & 'BE DIFFERENT TODAY'
Juliana Capes & Ruth Barrie
FILM SCREENINGS AT BELLFIELD
Sun 8th & Sat 14th Sept
Screenings: 11am and 12noon (duration 60mins)
Screenings of two interrelated films by local artist Juliana Capes and film maker Ruth Barrie.
These films have grown from Juliana's passion for equal access to the arts and her experience of working for 15 years as a Visual Describer in Scottish galleries. She considers Visual Description a creative practise akin to the making a painting and of equal benefit to visually impaired and sighted audiences alike.
“Sunset Reports” (2018) is a film that describes 52 minutes of sunset in a live monologue. This film speaks about the difficulties and responsibility of describing for others and the brokering of experience through language. Slowing down the process of looking, Sunset Report reaches for a vocabulary to describe the indescribable (such as colour, such as beauty, such as love, such as grief) and makes access inherent in the work from the outset. It operates on the cusp of personal and universal, a place Capes strives to occupy.
"Be Different Today" (2019) was filmed over seven visually described sunrises on Portobello beach in February 2019 in collaboration with filmmaker Ruth Barrie. It was made in response to a commission from LUX Scotland and BBC Scotland
'JOHN AND JULIE'
SAT/SUN 7TH/8TH/14TH/15TH SEPT 11am to 4pm
26 Bath Street
Artist Lindsay Perth re-edits the last film to be shown at the Victory Cinema at 26 Bath Street when it closed in 1956. The film, ‘John and Julie’ is a story of two children who run off from home to watch the Coronation in London. This road movie format is full of innocence and nostalgia for more simpler times. Perth reshapes the film into something much more unsettling, creating a version that becomes more damaged as it unfolds, with visual patterns, glitches and loops. From tampering with the characters, script and narrative, the film’s innocence is dismantled and deformed.
