The Artists’ Film International global consortium selects works which consider the theme of truth in artists’ film today.

About

Tom Ireland’s (b. 1984, UK) Actuality Picture/The Magic Lantern (chapter 5_N142291-180930 / W59999-71997) (2009–17) consists of thousands of images of Saturn taken by NASA’s Cassini space probe from 2004 to 2017. Referencing early cinema and ‘actuality films’ documenting everyday life, Ireland extends this to the solar system and how the enormity of space is recorded.

In I’m Talking to You (2016–18), Elena Mazzi (b. 1984, Italy) recorded residents of a Helsinki neighbourhood as they watch the news on television or computer screens. Their reactions to reports from Brexit to bombings in Baghdad include resignation, anger and derision.
