Sarah Forrest, Recital at GFF18
Thu 22 Feb 2018 / 6.30–8.00pm
In advance of the premiere of her 2017 Margaret Tait Award commission, Sarah Forrest presents a programme including a selection of recent works, which preface the development of her new film. In her work, an experience of doubt (intellectual/emotional/psychological) is often used to destabilise the familiar. Objects misbehave. Holes appear in reality. Appearances deceive. Nothing can be something felt, perceived as present. In both filmmaking and writing, she uses this moment of friction to explore tensions between text/image, fact/fiction, material/immateriality, and subject/object.
Forrest and Nicole Yip (Director, LUX Scotland) will be in conversation following the screening.
The venue has step free access to all floors.
Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2018.
