4 July 2016

Public House, Sarah Turner 2015.


Grierson Award nominated film Public House which premiered in October 2015 at the BFI London Film Festival, and is directed by award-winning artist Sarah Turner, Reader in Fine Art and Director of Research in the School of Music and Fine Art, is being screened at Tate Britain in 11 July,

It is also previewing in the Changing London forum at the ICA on July 12,,

Both events are followed by a Q & A conversation with the Director.

This genre-blending documentary of spoken word / text/ opera/ film was funded by a production award from Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) and a research award from the School of Music and Fine Art, University of Kent.

Additionally, Public House will be screening at 8pm on Sunday 21 August 2016 in Hackney Wick as part of The Floating Cinema's summer programme, Another Country. The film will be the closing feature film of the Hackney Wick weekender, which explores how, as the city gentrifies at a giddying rate, new spaces are appearing and old ones are fading away.
