There Goes the Neighbourhood @ Cinema6, May 30

26 May 2014

London’s Cinema 6 is presenting an evening of films and presentations titled ‘There Goes the Neighbourhood’ and hosted by Full Unemployment Cinema and Southwark Notes on May 30.

Th evening debates the political and economic factors behind the gentrification and ‘regeneration’ of South London, which, at the heart of both a housing crisis and steady gentrification, has become the scene of working class displacement.

The night will feature two films, including Concrete Heart Land, documenting Heygate residents as they try to curb the displacement and dispossession of their neighbourhood, and Bleacher on the Rye, a film about the regeneration of Peckham Rye Station.

100 Days after Childhood @ Cinema6, May 22

19 May 2014

On May 22, London’s Cinema 6 will host the first public screening of a new translation of Russia’s 70s film, 100 Days after Childhood

The film, largely unknown to English audiences until now, is part of a mini-season called Three Experiments in Translation and commissioned by Cinema6, aiming to explore modes of translation in cinema and how these experiments incorporate dreams and ambitions.

Written by Aleksand Aleksandrov and directed by Sergei Solovyov, 100 Days after Childhood is set during a summer at a Soviet Young Pioneer camp and follows a teenage Mitya through trials of love, despair and ‘youthful foolishness’, as Solovyov puts it.

The Time Is Now Ready For Delivery (Orgasmos) @ Cinema6, May 2

2 May 2014

London’s new Cinema6 film programme, running at Arcadia Missa April 27 to June 8, is screening an evening of artists’ video on May 2.

Organised by artist Anna Reading, the event features single-screen video by Holly White, Fanny Aboulker, Connie Butler, Jesse Darling and Hannah BlackAnnie Strachan, Mary Vetisse and more, responding to the brief of translating “the materiality of their practice into temporality”.

Occupying a transgressive space, not only in crossing boundaries in a hybrid approach to art but also in considering the notion of Orgasm as “a moment where matter and energy create a time-based phenomenon”, artists question notions  of “honesty, physicality, objecthood, patriarchy and the personal/political dichotomy”.
