“The problem is with bureaucrats who are preventing us from seeing the content” - Luke Fowler

Recently in Wellington for the opening of the Adam Art Gallery installation Passages, Scottish film-maker Luke Fowler sat down with Mark Williams at City Gallery Wellington for a wide-ranging interview on his filmed portraits of experimental musicians, the revolutionary potential of the past, the responsibility of the spectator, the plight of millenials and bypassing gatekeepers.

The conversation began after a screening Pilgrimage from Scattered Points (2006), his film about the English composer Cornelius Cardew (1936-1981) and his revolutionary ensemble The Scratch Orchestra.
