CIRCUIT at London Film Festival

On 18 October CIRCUIT will be at the London Film Festival to present Joanna Margaret Paul - I am an open window, which combines six films shot by Joanna Paul in the 1970’s with six recent commissions by Nova Paul, Rachel Shearer, Sonya Lacey, Miranda Parkes, Shannon Te Ao and the collective Popular Productions. Recently seen in Auckland as part of the CIRCUIT festival, each of the contemporary works was commissioned by CIRCUIT with the support of Creative New Zealand.

The screening will be prefaced by a conversation at the British Film Institute on Friday 16 October entitled Writing Women's Experimental Film Histories, where CIRCUIT Director Mark Williams will take part in a panel with Charlotte Procter (Collections Manager, LUX/ Committee member of Cinenova), Maud Jacquin (independent scholar and writer) and Lucy Reynolds (artist, writer and Course Leader of MRes Art: Moving Image, Central Saint Martins).
