PROGRESS BAR: FILM FORUM
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH FABRICA AND BRIGHTON FILM SCHOOL
9 MAY 2016
FILM SCREENINGS AND DISCUSSION
Lighthouse presents Progress Bar, a series of events giving insight into the creative practice of contemporary culture's most exciting names. From vanguard filmmakers and musicians to trending artists and activists, Progress Bar is our regular, ear-to-the-ground evening of new art, new music and, hopefully, new friends.
This special edition of Progress Bar, presented in partnership with Fabrica Film Forum and Brighton Film School, takes inspiration from the new immersive video installation The Sprawl (Propaganda About Propaganda) by award-winning artists and filmmakers Metahaven, in which they argue that the internet has become a weapon of mass destruction.
Showing a series of short films by Metahaven’s contemporaries, Progress Bar: Film Forum is an opportunity to watch and discuss works by a group of cutting-edge filmmakers and artists creating videos that respond to and comment on the internet. Often drawing subject matter and content from digital culture, including memes, gaming and social media, these works examine contemporary culture and world events as presented on our screens.
Featuring David Blandy, Yuri Pattison and Olivia Rochelle and Gerard-Jan Claes.
