Spirits of place

Cx0nNHVUcAEEvfg.jpg large


Stories are embedded in the world around us; in metal, in brick, in concrete, and in wood. In the very earth beneath our feet. Our history surrounds us and the tales we tell, true or otherwise, are always rooted in what has gone before. The spirits of place are the echoes of people, of events, of ideas which have become imprinted upon a location, for better or for worse. They are the genii loci of classical Roman religion, the disquieting atmosphere of a former battlefield, the comfort and familiarity of a childhood home.

Twelve authors take us on a journey; a tour of places where they themselves have encountered, and consulted with, these Spirits of Place.

Contributing authors: Bryndís Björgvinsdóttir, Vajra Chandrasekera, Maria J. Pérez Cuervo, Warren Ellis, Alan Moore, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Kristine Ong Muslim, Dr. Joanne Parker, Mark Pesce, Iain Sinclair, Gazelle Amber Valentine, and Damien Williams. Edited by John Reppion.

Friday 10 February, 18.30

‘But sometimes,’ Don DeLillo wrote, ‘the street spills over me, too much to absorb, and I have to stop thinking and keep walking.’ Iain Sinclair considers an old city stretched to the point of erasure, and a walker disappearing into the labyrinth of his own footprints.

Iain Sinclair is the author of Lights Out for the Territory, Downriver and Ghost Milk. He lives in Haggerston, East London.

Sulphur

Sulphur is a short movie.

It merges documentary and horror, diving head first into the ceremonial weirdness of bonfire night in Lewes, Sussex. An annual event of ritual, anti-catholicism, errant fireworks and some healthy hostility between locals and outsiders.

 The shoot involved sending two crews and two actors into the furnace to explore the peccadilloes and darker dimensions of our odd, English folk traditions. 

 Sulphur was directed by Christopher Ian Smith, whose short films have played at festivals across the world. His feature documentary New Town Utopia (www.newtownutopia.com) is Exec Produced by Margaret Matheson (Scum, Sid and Nancy, Sleep Furiously) and due for completion in Feb 2017.

It was edited by audiovisual master Xavier Perkins (Exceeda), with a music score by analogue hauntologist Concretism (https://concretism.bandcamp.com/).
