Venue: hmvcurzon Wimbledon, 23 The Broadway, SW19 1RE
hmvcurzon Wimbledon and Wimbledon College of Art have teamed up to create a hub for artists' moving image and avant garde cinema in South West London, featuring cutting edge work and opportunities to meet the artists.
Students from the Wimbledon College of Art MA have created a series of short films specifically for the launch event, to be premiered alongside a specially selected artist's film FIASKO by German photographer/filmmaker Janet Riedel. FIASKO, inspired by the novel by Nobel Prize winning Hungarian author Imre Kertész, tells the story of a new beginning in Stalinist Budapest exploring the search for identity and the multiplication of one's personality under the repression of totalitarianism. Recalling Chris Marker's La jetée Riedel creates an atmospheric mix of startling photography and confessional narrative.
