Welcome to The Royal Institute of Arts’ annual Research Week and the presentation of Performing Pictures’ research project Revelation/Revolution. We are giving a unique preview of the essay film Dreaming the Memories of Now (90 min) – ungraded, not mixed/mastered and with one final scene to be completed in March!
Dreaming the Memories of Now
Cycling pilgrims, a 30 cm tall Madonna figure, falling men and a five year old girl’s future memories are some of the threads weaving a story about faith beyond the boundaries of belief, about the hope that nothing will ever fall into oblivion, and the overflowing love of images. The film is recorded in Oaxaca, southern Mexico by Geska and Robert Brečević, Performing Pictures.
The film will be screened January 26, 13.00-15.00 in Muralen, The Royal Institute of Art (main building). Film and presentation in English.
