Step into the future of film, as The East End Film Festival explores the convergence of film, digital and storytelling at EMERGE.
Sarah Turner will be speaking on June 19, about her work and methods in relation to a new project – Public House. The Barbican, London will be hosting the day of talks, discussions and networking, featuring radical thinkers, digital pioneers and innovators in film and video.
Public House fuses fact and fiction in a multi layered exploration of memory, community and social reinvention. Activated in response to the community takeover of the Ivy House pub, London, SE15, this feature length work for cinemas is a shape shifting genre hybrid that moves from observational document to minimalist opera. Interweaving testament, performance poetry and an innovative soundscape that fuses acousmatic composition and verbatim librettos, the film explores individual and cultural memory and its resonance in shaping social spaces.
