Wondermental cinema can be a politically discursive art form, with its ability to question, subvert, oppose and rebel. This programme presents an array of recent works chosen for their political engagement with the idea of empire, whether overt or subtle, asking you to think again. Controlled fury at the hypocrisy of the priveleged, the quietly powerful flag on the mountain, cinema and dictatorship in North Korea, a multi-screen subversive ethnicity, a cry of ‘why’ in Algeria, a revised Heart of Darkness, Leo Strauss’ connection with torture, photography as colonial appropriation, and rethinking the urban. Includes work by Gioli, Smith, Bärtås, Wong, Devaux, Breuer, Sanborn, Chen and Lurf.
