Stills and the CCA are co-hosting ECONOMY, a group
exhibition focusing on the impact of global capitalist on our daily life. We
are particularly interested in Stills' Film
showcasing work by Michael Glawogger (Austria), Francesco Jodice (Italy) and
Maria Ruido (Spain).
Speaking of film, we are very
excited about The Glasgow Film
The festival only started in 2005 and had been growing steadily ever since. The
full programme was announced yesterday - we have a staggering 368 events, 57 UK
premieres and 6 world premieres to keep us entertained this February.
The highlight for us could be Souvenirs of Serge, a documentary charting the relationship
between Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. The film will be followed by a
performance from Jane, who will be interpreting a few classics penned by the Gallic
genius/provocateur. We are also attending a screening of Carl Dreyer’s stark and
extremely powerful The Passion of Joan
A classic that deserves to be seen in a good cinema, and that cinema happens to
be Glasgow Cathedral, a rather perfect setting. The GFF opens on 14th February with
French comedy Populaire: we will be keeping an eye on it on a
daily basis and report anything we find of interest. Watch this space.
