Join us for a co-presented online screening of a programme of short works, the first event in a planned larger series entitled 'Frontierland,' curated by Pamela Cohn and Open City Documentary Festival.
With borders closed and people's movement across the world restricted, the themes of the 'Frontierland' programme feels even more pertinent than ever, so the decision was taken to launch the programme online.
Inspired, in part, by the writings and ideas in Giuliana Bruno’s Atlas of Emotion: Journeys in Art, Architecture, and Film and Tom Conley’s Cartographic Cinema, 'Frontierland' is a survey of new and older works that expand the idea of the filmic travelogue – moving image works that reveal our evolving relationship to place.
Physical presence in an increasingly mediated era is no longer required to experience the breadth of ways one can move through the world. This selection of films speaks to that shift in the way we conceive of distances traversed, the world expanding and contracting, revealing terrain that is material, emotional, philosophical and transcendent.
