'Time and Tide Flow Wide' is a screening at Quarterhouse and Silver Screen Cinema. This event will draw together films that reference the ebb and flow of time and reflect on the influence of manmade and natural forces on everyday life.

About

‘Pleasure Through Drowning’ (2015) is a film about an impossible attempt to escape a society over-saturated with moving image.  Karin Kihlberg and Reuben Henry, chart a day trip to Portsea Island where they search for 32 historic cinemas which existed there during the 20th Century. The recurring theme of flooding in the film drifts from a library flood into the 32 narratives created for the cinemas, each one circling around themes of deep or rising water and its cultural relevance.

Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen’s ‘Promised Land’ (2011-13) depicts the final stage of a group of young men’s dramatic journey from war-torn regimes in Iran and Afghanistan to life as a refugee in Europe.  Mapping three personal stories, the film provides an insight into close friendships, hopes, dreams and their coping mechanisms for life’s sorrows.

‘LIMULUS’ (2014) is a film by Karen Kramer, where the Narrator is a supernatural piece of marine debris. The film is a speculative fiction about the encounter between a piece of ocean debris (a deflated mylar balloon), a horseshoe crab and a 1974 Seeburg ‘Olympian’ jukebox. It reflects on pressing ecological realities and the way that conceptions of the ‘natural world,’ elemental forces and time are affected by them.

At high tide (16:36) artist Kati Kärki will present a second instalment of 'sideSEA(ing)SEAside – Notes of a foreign seaside visitor' (2015). Artist Kati Kärki has been invited to respond to Folkestone Artworks: New Edition – a collection of 27 public sculptures which were originally produced as part of the Folkestone Triennial -  to consider the spaces between artworks and a sense of place. Focusing linguistically on verbalizing nouns as a strategy of editing its subjects into motion, these notes will be activated and given voice(s) through a collective reading.
