Film-maker and artist Miranda Pennell will be joined by Isla Leaver-Yap (Director, LUX Scotland) for an In Conversation, expanding upon Pennell’s practice and thinking around performance in relation to the moving image and the tension between still and moving image. Pennell’s recent films including Why Colonel Bunny Was Killed (2010) and You made me love you (2005) and others will be screened during the evening.

Miranda Pennell is an artist and film-maker living and working in London. She originally trained in contemporary dance and later received an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London. Pennell has produced a body of award-winning film and video work that explores forms of collective performance, whether dancers, soldiers or fight directors. Her most recent moving-image work uses colonial archives as the starting point for investigations into the colonial imaginary.
