Handmade 16mm film workshop lead by BEEF (Bristol Experimental Expanded Film) artist Marcy Saude

About

Lead by BEEF member, Marcy Saude, this workshop dips into the potential of photochemical film to enact radical media critique via appropriation, transmutation of digital images into tangible form, and manipulation. Together we will explore “DIY DI” (digital intermediate) by re-filming from a computer screen onto 16mm, process our film in developers made from common household ingredients, and then alter the footage using physical (scratching, burning) and chemical (bleach, washing soda, dyes) methods. The subject of the day’s capture and transmogrification will be TV series and films with law enforcement as protagonist(s).

During the periods of waiting inherent to hand-made 16mm filmmaking processes, we will hear briefly about the historical development of policing in the UK and the US in relationship to slavery and capitalism, connect with contemporary struggles against police violence, and discuss the possibility of breaking through dominant media imaginaries to envision a world without cops via community-based alternative justice strategies and DIY photochemical filmmaking.
