Event for the launch of American Smoke

American Smoke posterBook Launch, including signing by the author from 6-7pm. Films: 7.30pm.

To celebrate the booklaunch of Iain Sinclair‘s American Smoke (Hamish Hamilton), Test Centre and F have combined forces with 70×70 to present a FREE informal screening in the F event space of Patricio Guzmán’s documentary Nostalgia for the Light (2010, 90 mins), one of 70 films selected by Iain to commemorate his 70th birthday. Nostalgia for the Light contrasts the rise of Chilean astronomy with the fate of inmates of the country’s Chacabuco prison mine. We will also be showing Francis Alÿs’s Tornado (2000-2010, 39 mins), which documents Alÿs attempting to run into Mexican tornadoes.

With a live introduction to the films by Iain Sinclair – these films dovetail nicely with the content of the new book in which Sinclair engages with the memory-filled landscapes of the American Beats.

Address: F 110 Stoke Newington, Church Street, N16 0JX.
