Jem Cohen Screening and Q&A


Jem Cohen Screening and Q&A Saturday 21 November 2009 At: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ 5:30pm: Doors & Bar 6pm: Screening Entry: £5/£4 (concs) Spaces are limited. To book tickets in advance please click here. New York-based filmmaker Jem Cohen is truly a unique voice. Straddling documentary, artists' film and the essay or diary film yet resisting such neat categorisation, his work is at once lyrical and poetic, compassionate yet incisive, and, in the case of his street- and city-films, quietly angry at the casual abuses of liberty and power which have come to define the last decade, particularly in post-Giuliani New York. Lighthouse will be screening a selection of Cohen's seminal films as part of Brighton's Film Festival, Cinecity 2009. The screening will be divided into two programmes entitled Invisible Cities (Italian City Portraits) and Street Songs (New York notebooks), and will end with a Q&A with Cohen hosted by writer Gareth Evans.
