As part of Seeing the Light exhibition there will be a series of experimental film screenings.  All events are free and there is no need to book as we will have plenty of chairs. It screenings will be here at WRKSHP, the theatre/cinema/workshop space in the studios, which has been revamped, painted and had black-out blinds fitted.

The dates and details are:

Monday November 7th, 8pm: THE CONSECUTIVE IMPOSTORS

The Consecutive Impostors are Esperanza Collado and Maximilian Le Cain, and this screening presents work from or connected to their ongoing project ‘Operation Rewrite’. Stemming from an original concept of making very short videos for the internet following a set of strict formal rules, ‘Operation Rewrite’ has mutated into a multidisciplinary art project that keeps at its centre the idea of the interruption as crucial to cinematic montage.


The partnership of Hungarian filmmakers Ivan & Igor Buharov has produced some of the most unique and quirkily beautiful experimental cinema to have come out of Europe in the past decade. To watch a Buharov film has been described as “getting lost in someone else’s dream. The directors Igor and Ivan Buharov invite us to see the insides of their brains through various amusing and absurd story-lines.”(Off Screen Film Festival, Brussels) These darkly playful hallucinations come with the aura of having been discovered in someone’s attic, precisely revealing a world perhaps subconsciously suspected but hitherto un-describable. Ivan & Igor Buharov will be present in person to discuss their work…

Wednesday November 9th, 6pm: (AN)OTHER IRISH CINEMA & VICKY LANGAN

The (An)Other Irish Cinema screening project consists of the work of three Irish-based independent filmmakers: Donal Foreman, Rouzbeh Rashidi and Maximilian Le Cain. Although their styles are very different, they are linked by the use of exploratory, non-script-based approaches to filmmaking and by a keen awareness of the cinema histories that have explored the medium's possibilities far beyond the accepted rules of the multiplex. This programme includes Foreman’s acclaimed fiction shorts Pull and Refuge; three episodes of Rashidi’s current, darkly hypnotic short film series Homo Sapiens Project; and the premiere of the visually overpowering Lullaby, the latest work in an ongoing creative partnership between Le Cain and Cork-based sound/performance artist Vicky Langan.
