MicroCinema

Hideouts from Time brings you the Microcinema, an alternative screening space on campus. The microcinema is an intimately sized venue seeking to redefine the way audiences encounter work, interact with each other and gain exposure to new cinematic forms. It is a make-shift structure that strips the cinematic experience to the bare essentials of a set time and space, projection equipment and an audience. By creating a collective experience it looks to confront our age of personal screens and online streaming.

Hideouts from time are excited to bring you three evenings of fiction film, documentary, soundscapes and shorts in the Humanities Studio:

Tuesday 12 March, 7.30pm / / / Strata of Perception

Oh, what a dream

Montage and Soundscape, 2013 - 12min

(dir. Béla Tarr), Rest of the World, 2000 - 145min

Thursday 14 March, 6.00pm / / / HERZOG!!

Wheel of Time
(dir. Werner Herzog), Rest of the World, 2003 - 80min
An absorbing documentary about the magnificent and fragile sand mandala Kalachakra, Wheel of Time plunges its audience into an intensely devotional world, feeling its tug and sensing its extreme austerity.

Fitzcarraldo
(dir. Werner Herzog), Rest of the World, 1982 - 157min
An all-time Herzog classic, Fitzcarraldo sees Fitzcarraldo, a would-be rubber baron haul a steamship over a hill, a madman’s dream.

Friday 15 March, 7.30pm / / / Nomadic series

A selection of short documentaries from Sublime Frequencies.
Sublime Frequencies produces music and film, short wave, field and radio recordings of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Paris, Texas

Paris, Texas is a tender, graceful, but idiosyncratic drama which sees a wanderer return from the brink.
