THE ART OF INDUSTRY

This event has ended.

Inspired by the artistry of Bert Haanstra’s Oscar-winning 1958 Dutch short Glas and taking up the discussion of representation from recent feature documentaries A Northern Soul and Sound It Out, this non-fiction programme looks to the humanity of industry, asking questions of class identity and documentary’s legacy of ‘poverty porn’. Seeking to capture the current realities of post-industrial regions and excavate past truths of industry in motion, we will follow with an open discussion, inviting dialogue around the need for authentic and positive representations of industrial and working class communities on screen. 51’

Following the screening curator Jen Corcoran will be in discussion with Charlie Phillips (The Guardian Docs) and filmmaker and community film archive researcher Samuel Stevens.
