IFI & EXPERIMENTAL FILM CLUB: UNROLLING PROCESSES

Laida Lertxundi, Hollis Frampton, James Benning

Book Tickets

The central work of this month’s programme, curated by Esperanza Collado, is The Room Called Heaven, the most recent film from Los Angeles-based Spanish filmmaker, Laida Lertxundi. Lertxundi’s filmmaking expresses situations of process: perceptual processes, film production processes, and the process in which a film runs from one reel to the other.

The notion of process connects The Room Called Heaven with the structural reflections of Hollis Frampton’s Lemon – an exploration of luminous modulation unrolling in time, translated to the volumetric illusion of space – and the positioning of the cinematographic medium between a mobile condition and a static one, as suggested in James Benning’s Ten Skies

These three masterpieces make up a powerful programme of plastic beauty and insightful reflection that should not to be missed.
