Barbara Hammer X BEEF Screening

Barbara Hammer is a legend and pioneer of things queer and experimental, yet her films are barely accessible. Hammer died in March this year and this screening of her best known work Nitrate Kisses on 16mm projection will be an ode, a celebration, and an opportunity to unite as a community, sharing thoughts, ideas, and issues. This event promotes queer visibility and confronts film history\'s tendency to exclude the marginalised. About the film... In her first feature, Barbara Hammer weaves striking images of four contemporary gay and lesbian couples with footage of an unearthed, forbidden, and invisible history, searching eroded emulsions and images for lost vestiges of queer culture. Questions of historic representation are examined through addressing the margins, between-the-line readings, and images outside of prescribed textual boundaries. Archival footage from Lot In Sodom (1933), often regarded as the first queer film made in the United States, as well as footage from German narrative and documentary films of the thirties, are interwoven with contemporary footage in this multi-faceted, haunting documentary. "Nitrate Kisses questions how history is recorded and encourages the viewer, gay or straight, to save scraps, letters, books, records, and snapshots in order to preserve our \'ordinary\' lives as history." Barbara Hammer CLIP - https://vimeo.com/2883381 ------- This event works in partnership with Bristol Experimental Expanded Film collective. Before the main screening, we will be showcasing some brilliant works from BEEF members: Viridian Ensemble https://viridian.hotglue.me/ Vicky Smith - \'Noisy Licking, Dribbling and Spitting\' (2014) https://vickysmith.blog/ The screening will then be followed by a panel discussion (members TBA) and time for audience Q&A. ------- TICKETS 5 available through Headfirst (link below) or at the door. Please get in touch if you cannot afford this and we can figure it out - nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds. https://www.headfirstbristol.co.uk/#date=2019-08-21&event_id=56266

Deckchair seating will be provided on a first come first served basis. Don\'t forget to wrap up warm or put on some sun cream if it\'s hot.

Because the planet\'s environment is poisonous, human/Na\'vi hybrids, called Avatars, must link to human minds to allow for free movement on Pandora. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paralyzed former Marine, becomes mobile again through one such Avatar and falls in love with a Na\'vi woman (Zoe Saldana). As a bond with her grows, he is drawn into a battle for the survival of her world. In response to the climate emergency, we have selected films this season that highlight the urgent need to change our ways and live in greater harmony with the natural world. Inside We The Curious, all of our Live Science activities this summer focus on the positive actions we can take to limit climate change. www.wethecurious.org/event/summer-holidays-climate-action We will also be screening: The Lorax - 31st July www.facebook.com/events/1066093066916587 Beasts of the Southern Wild - 7th Aug www.facebook.com/events/664186410721133 Bambi - 14th Aug www.facebook.com/events/312675889611752 We look forward to welcoming you!

Pottery, Live At The Prince Albert - Brighton

Hailing from across Canada and the UK, Montreals Pottery consists of core writers Austin Boylan and Jacob Shepansky, along with Peter Baylis, Paul Jacobs, and Tom Gould. Initially bonding over artists such as Orange Juice, Josef K and Devo, the band creates a sound that combines eclectic traces of post-punk, pop, and dance music, forming an unusual atmosphere that envelopes audiences. While often shrill and jarring, Potterys songs simultaneously engage listeners into a hypnotic state. Its this dualism that binds them together, uncovering harmony within discord. TICKETS: bit.ly/Pottery-TPA (18+)
