Summary A live film performance using magnificent 16mm featuring Dirk De Bruyn in person. Can an image be sonic and ephemeral in the digital age? Live 3-screen film projection, shadow-play and sound poetry plumbing 35 years of experimental film practice, laying bare those processes of graffiti production splattered across the alleyways and railway lines of the planet’s inner cities but whose performance threatens to become completely hidden inside the computer. Images scratched, dyed, bleached and redrawn by hand are brought together to immerse the audience in an aural-visual rant. Does the analogue answer back to the digital media explosion or merely succumb in an angry death rattle of lost causes? Rev presents a rare opportunity to see one of Australia’s most important experimental filmmakers presenting a unique expanded cinema event.
