CIRCUIT CAST Episode 29: Dirk De Bruyn (symposium preview #2)

Dirk de Bruyn

“Someone puts (up) a British flag and says ‘there’s nothing here’”. Our latest podcast features Dirk de Bruyn, an Australian experimental film-maker and guest presenter at the upcoming CIRCUIT symposium A Genealogy of Moving Image Practice.

Here Dirk talks to Mark Amery about his recent film Threshold, which uses Google Maps and aerial photography to examine how technology constructs memory. He also discusses the embrace of the European and American experimental film canon at the expense of the local lineage in Australia and New Zealand.

This year's symposium takes place on Saturday 15 August at Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland. Registration is $50. 

CIRCUIT CAST Episode 29 was engineered by Callum Devlin.
