Interview with Paul Wright (For Those In Peril).

For Those in Peril director Paul Wright

Paul Wright’s debut feature film, For Those In Peril, won many plaudits on its release and even managed a BAFTA nomination this year.  His film is richly layered and deeply moving fantastical tale of an isolated community who are at odds with the soul survivor of a tragedy at sea.  For Those In Peril is out now on DVD and a full article on the film can be found here.

Short Film – The Book of Sand (Jorge Luis Borges).

Fotor0322135127

The Book of Sandis probably the most ambitious project I’ve attempted so far.  The technique I’ve been using to make films for the last year or so (using a photographic sports mode on a Canon 600D and then animating the results like a stop-motion) may have seemed gimmick lead but, until very recently, this has been the only way I’ve…

That Sinking Feeling (Bill Forsyth, 1979) – BFI Flipside.

95973_front

The late 1970s and early 1980s occupy a strange realm in our current affections of nostalgia.  While openly acknowledged as a problematic era for politics, riots and race/police relations being at an all time low, there has been a steady but gradual yearning for the age’s art.  This isn’t just in the traditional sense of nostalgia but quite a specific relationship; the era is currently being…

Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.

Conclusions

“The link between art and real history is the fact that works of art are structured like monads.  History may be called the content of works of art.  Analysing them is the same as becoming conscious of the immanent history stored up in them.” Adorno (1970, p.126).

The bedrock of this essay has been to show how Ligeti’s Atmosphèresmoved itself away from…
