Seminar: Re-framing the City on Film. Documentary as Memory, Place and Space

  • ICA, The Mall London SW1Y 5AH United Kingdom (map)

Since the advent of the moving image, how we negotiate, imagine, and relate to the city has been profoundly shaped by its representations on film. In this CHASE seminar, Polish filmmaker EWA PODGÓRSKA will present scenes from her feature documentary, Diagnosis, which forms part of the FoR Festival programme on Wednesday 17th April. Podgorska’s unique filmic language, inspired by urban psychology, offers new approaches to film as a methodical tool that interacts and responds to the real and imagined spaces it represents on screen. It also re-frames our understanding of how the built space around us is as much formed by those who interact within it. The Director will use this seminar to give insight into her creative process alongside short excerpts of the film. She will be joined by a panel of CHASE academics and film practitioners to explore topics relating to the City as a psychic space, a space of resistance, of recovery and alienation. Join us at the ICA for a rewarding session that will critically engage with our relationships to the city on screen and explore film as a tool to re-engage with the urban environment. The seminar format will invite questions and also encourage contributions from the audience.
