Screenings 2018 

Towner Arts Gallery, Eastbourne 18 Nov 7.30

Andrew Kotting

The Moon and the Sledgehammer  will screen at the Towner Arts Gallery on Sat 18 November at 7.30.  Ben Rivers’ film, This is my Land, will also show.  Rivers is fascinated by people who live on the edge of society. His film follows the life of old Jake in his remote and ramshackle Aberdeenshire home.    Like the Page family, Jake ‘inherited’ his lifestyle, both having been once part of a thriving rural community. Neither chose to live so remotely but equally, both chose not to give up the freedom it offers in exchange for the doubtful rewards of consumerism. The programme has been curated by Andrew Kotting  and is part of a wider free exhibition called Who You Walk With Alters What You Are.  It features three psychogeographical journey-works made in collaboration with Iain Sinclair, featuring pinhole photographs (Anonymous Bosch), artefacts, paintings (Eden Kötting) and film installations.  Kotting’s own Gallivant screens on 2nd December. Tickets here:

Bewdley, Worcestershire 7 Nov at 7.30pm

Get on down to Bewdley in Worcestershire on 7th November and enjoy a screening of The Moon and the Sledgehammer, starting at 7.30 pm. Part of a double bill, the film will screen with ‘London Symphony’, a brand new silent film – a city symphony – which offers a poetic journey through the city of London. It is an artistic snapshot of the city as it stands today, and a celebration of its culture and diversity. With music by James McWilliam, it has been nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017 Tickets are £5.00 and can be purchased at the venue or online here: Book your tickets now as I’m told they’re going fast.

Dick by Fire

Shepherd Mr Dick Freeman by the fire

Following the successful sell-out screening of the premiere of the restored copy at the Duke of York’s cinema in Brighton, we are delighted to announce a rare opportunity to watch a Philip Trevelyan DOUBLE BILL – The Moon & the Sledgehammer + Lambing (25 mins.) For the first time in decades Trevelyan’s award winning student film will show on the big screen.  The film features old shepherd Mr Dick Freeman, alone on his hilltop farm in the cold, dark nights of the lambing season.  This early work already shows a powerful control of time and space with the subject seemingly oblivious to the camera, giving up glimpses into a shared intimacy, drawing us hypnotically into the shepherd’s life and Trevelyan’s vision. Saturday 13th August at 3.30pm.  Tickets available now here cinema’s website, or phone their Box Office Number: 0871 902 5728 (calls cost 13p per minute plus your telephone company’s access charge)
