FILM SCREENING: Looking Back Looking Forward

Sat 21 Jan 4-6pm // At Turf Gallery // Free

A selection of contemporary video works that resonate with Ken Jacobs’ 1963 film Little Stabs at Happiness, curated by WAVES artist Luke Burton. Explore idosyncratic uses of performance to camera, playful use of sound and music, humour, a light touch, and a tenderly abject – but beautiful – atmosphere.
