FILM FOCUS: SHEN XIN PRESENTS


Thursday 28 June

6pm – 8pm

Tickets £4, include a glass of wine or tea on arrival

This Thursday Late event has been curated by award-winning artist Shen Xin, to coincide with her current exhibition 'Sliced Units' at CFCCA.

 
The three films by Shen Xin featured in 'Sliced Units' use fictions to create new spaces for exploring emotive political issues. This event continues this theme with two films selected by Shen that use mythical narratives to address complex politics.
 
The films being screened are:
 
'Nightfall' by Anocha Suwichakornpong and Tulapop Saenjaroen
'And you will eat and be sated' by Sarai Kirchner
 
The screening will be followed by a Q and A with Shen Xin and Sarai Kirchner who will be discussing their practice in more detail.
 
There will also be the chance to see the open studio of our current artist in residence Keke Zhu.
 
Tickets are available on Eventbrite here
 
Or you can purchase your ticket at our shop.
