Filmmaker and educator Saeed Taji Farouky will take participants through a non-academic, irreverent, multi-media exploration of "absence" as an essential creative and political component of radical / experimental documentary filmmaking.

Journeying through music, literature, dance, film, and architecture, Saeed will examine how certainty and presence - requirements of capitalist, industrial filmmaking - can be challenged and contradicted to devise new ways of storytelling. (This event will include Pavlova).

This performance lecture by Saeed Taji Farouky coincides with screenings of his latest film, A Thousand Fires.

You are welcome to just come along to the performance lecture only OR you can watch both the film and the lecture on Sunday 6th November from 14:15
