Vanishing Point - celebrating Duncan Whitley's residency at the University of Warwick

In the academic year 2022-23, Film and Television Studies/the School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Culture were delighted to host Duncan Whitley as our Filmmaker in ResidenceLink opens in a new window. During his residency, Duncan worked with academics from around the university, and particularly the Borders, Race, Ethnicity and Migration Network and community partners Inini. His work was supported by the IAS, the Connecting Cultures GRP, Warwick Institute of Engagement, as well as the SCAPVC. To celebrate the end of Duncan’s residency we are organising a screening of Duncan’s recent and developing work (including the work that has come out of this residency), along with a Q&A with Duncan and some time to reflect on the place of artists in residence in the university.

The event takes place in the Faculty of Arts Building’s cinema (FAB 0/21) on the University of Warwick central campus on Thursday 30th November from 6-8.30pm, including a drinks reception in the Agora in the FAB.

Film and Television Studies, Research Seminar: Penny Siopis’s stylo-caméra and the subject of cine-writing, Wednesday 19th October FAB0.21 (Cinema) 4.30pm

Penny Siopis’s films write histories that are markedly alternative. Combining family home movies, amateur or documentary found footage with sound and a written text presented through subtitles, her films tell untold or censored histories. They speak to (auto)biographical concerns and widely shared experiences of colonialism, war, Apartheid, migration, globalisation, and ecological crisis, all the while standing out as strong aesthetic/affective experiences beyond the historical, and as art objects in dialogue with a number of traditions. Here, I am most interested in producing an understanding of her films as a specific form of post-medium cine-writing. My interest is not purely formal, for the cine-writing in Siopis’s films is not independent of the stories they construct; it is a mode of writing beyond-the-book, born of the task of telling history otherwise. By working through her paragrammatical, scripto-visual style, my discussion will circle in particular around the unspeakable film subject produced by her work.
