BRIEF ENCOUNTERS: BETWEEN STRUCTURE AND AGENCY

various

Book Tickets

This programme of experimental short works examines different facets or experiences of agency to consider what occurs when it is compromised, reclaimed, expanded or channelled elsewhere. The programme looks particularly, but not exclusively, at the role of the film protagonist and their struggle to find and maintain a fixed place as cinematic subject.

Recent films by Irish artists to screen include Saoirse Wall’s Sticky Encounter (2016), Laura Fitzgerald’s Portrait of a Stone (2018), Sharon Whooley’s Distance (2018), Doireann O’Malley’s A dream of becoming 24 eyes, 4 parallel brains & 360 vision (2014) and Ronan McCrea’s Autodidact (2011).

This programme, curated by Alice Butler and distributed in the UK by LUX film distributors, is an initiative of IFI International, and is made possible with the generous support of the Culture Ireland GB18 programme.
