This month CAST Film Club screens five films by Spanish artist Laida Lertxundi, who will introduce the films and participate in a Q&A with programme curator Kelly Taylor.

About

CAST will be screening Lertxundi's most recent film 025 Sunset Red, 2016 as well as Footnotes to a House of Love, 2007, Cry When It Happens, 2010, The Room Called Heaven, 2012 and Vivir para Vivir [Live to Live], 2015. Shot primarily on 16mm in and around Los Angeles, where Lertxundi lives and works, all of these extraordinary works explore their own materiality and the process of making film using non-actors, landscapes and sounds. 

Lertxundi's most recent work 025 Sunset Red, shot in locations across California is, in the artist's words, 'a kind of quasi-autobiographical reckoning'. She describes the film as 'a diaphanous, psychedelic foray into the domestic and the political, looking at ways that politics may erupt, shape a life, form a sensibility, and become inscribed upon a body'.

Food at CAST Café from 6.30pm, something hot and something sweet for £6
