PrescIent Pool - July

Artists’ Curated Films

(Part of Prescient Pool 2019)

Throughout July to September, HOP Projects will invite artists and participants of Prescient Pool 2019 to curate and share a series of films that are significant and influential to their work. In July, Amalia Pascal has selected a poetic documentary by the Chilean filmmaker, Ignacio Aguüero. This will be followed by a film installation by Romily Alice Walden, curated by Hannah Prizeman.

Screening #1: The Other Day (El Otra Día) | Ignacio Agüero | 2013 | Chile

Thursday 25 July, 8 - 10pm, 71 Tontine Street, Folkestone CT20 1JR

Beautifully photographed, The Other Day is a documentary that weaves together the profound with the intimacy of the ordinary, personal and national histories, Chile’s economic realities and identity via the most low-key of approaches: the film is shot primarily inside his home and through a door that leads to the street, opening up a sequence of relationships through encounters with strangers who come knocking.

 

Screening & Installation #2: Notes From The Underlands | Romily Alice Walden | 2019 | British

Friday 26 July, 5 - 9pm, 71 Tontine Street, Folkestone CT20 1JR

Notes From The Underlands is a performative text from the depths of queer disability culture. It is both a future-orientated vision of a sick, disabled and care-giving Utopia, and an urgent call to action in the now. The text is performed through video, audio, large-scale print and subtitles; challenging the notion that the body must be physically present (and abled) in order to perform.
