Bonington Gallery will transform into an open cinema for Video Days – the 25 day exhibition will display a variety of films or series of short films daily, each holding several common themes yet shot in different decades and genres.

About

Event details:

Video Days takes its title from the 90s skateboard video by Blind Skateboards. Produced in 1991 by American skateboarder and filmmaker, Spike Jonze, the iconic video depicts street and park skating in the US, and is considered one of the most influential skate videos of its time.

For the duration of 25 days the gallery will be transformed into an open cinema. Running daily, Video Days presents a different film or series of short films each day from different decades and genres. The films screened share several common themes, most prevalent is their relationship to the built environment.

Invited participants include independent research agency, Forensic Architecture whose film 77sqm_9:26min documents their counter investigation into evidence relating to the murder of 21-year-old Halit Yozgat in Kassel, Germany. Halit was the ninth of ten racist murders performed by a neo-Nazi group known as the National Socialist Underground (NSU) across Germany between 2000 and 2007.

Video Days also features Paris-based filmmaker Eric Baudelaire, whose 2017 film Also Known As Jihadi, traces a young man’s journey to radicalisation. Other films include contributions from photographer and filmmaker Dick Jewell; and artists Karen Cunningham, and Simon Martin.

We launch our open cinema with a special evening screen of the 90s skateboard film, Video Days on Thursday 19 April. Announcements of the full line-up, including start times and film duration, will feature on our website and via our social media channels.
