UnionDocs is delighted to invite you to an evening of cinema and conversation with the brilliant artist and filmmaker Zoe Beloff. This super special screening features two films by Beloff shot on 3D B/W 16mm film, exploring the origins of cinema from a feminist and psychological perspective. We’ll be setting up a silver screen, 16mm projector and will provide 3D glasses to all. Come through to witness the unique and rare wonder of stereoscopic film!

The title and the narrative of Shadow Land or Light from the Other Side are taken from the 1897 autobiography of Elizabeth d’Espérance, a materializing medium who could produce full body apparitions. Charming Augustine presents an experimental narrative based on the case of a young patient, Augustine who was documented in a series of photographs and texts on hysteria published in the 1880’s under the title of the Iconographie photographique de la Salpêtrière. Both films explore the origins of cinema from a feminist and psychological perspective.

This screening is presented in conjunction with Tara Aliya Kesavan and Indranil Choudhury’s exhibition FEEBLE TRANSMITTERS.
