Closing Night: UK PREMIERE Present.Perfect. + Q&A

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

The explosion of live-streaming platforms in China and the ensuing government crackdown provides the context for Shengze Zhu’s Present.Perfect. (Wan Mei Xian Zai Shi), a work comprising intimate footage shared by twelve Chinese online streamers. Regardless of class, sexuality or physical ability, these personal broadcasters open themselves to an anonymous audience in search of connection. Through a diverse collage of videos, Present.Perfect. encourages us to consider the ways in which we expose ourselves online in pursuit of affirmation, and to confront how, for better or worse, our identities and relationships have become entangled with network technologies.

This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Shengze Zhu hosted by FoR 2019 festival curator Nico Marzano.

The Workshop: On Cinematic Language with Adele Tulli + Shengze Zhu features as part of this year's festival. 

Meet the director after the Q&A at the FRAMES of REPRESENTATION Closing Night Party in the ICA Nash and Brandon Rooms in partnership with MUBI. All ticket holders are entitled to a free drink.
