Battersea, Gorvy Lecture Theatre
Free; no booking required
This installment of the RCA Film Night Series is a screening of Anja Kirschner's Moderation (2016). The film, set in Egypt, Greece and Italy, revolves around a female horror director and her collaborators, whose latest project is haunted by the way horror traverses the realities of their lives on and off screen.
Moderation was commissioned by the curator Nadja Argyropoulou for Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative (GR), co-produced by Beirut (EG) and Nomas Foundation (IT) and supported by the Elephant Trust (UK) and the Greek Film Centre (GR).
Anja Kirschner is an artist whose films draw on factual, literary and pop-cultural sources and deal with materiality, digitality and narrativity and their share in the (de)formation of subjectivities and political agency. She is the winner of the 2011 Jarman Award (with David Panos) and her films have been widely exhibited and screened internationally, including at Secession, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Tate Modern, the Berlinale, the BFI London Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.
