Osmosis UK – New Artists’ Film and Video from Taiwan

+ Artist Q&A

Taiwan, 80 mins, 2017

Showing times: 

  • Tue 10 Oct: 5.30pm 

New artists’ film and video curated from Osmosis, Taiwan’s leading film, video and music festival. A varied collection of film and video by some of Taiwan’s cutting edge artists working with moving image and creative technology.

All the artists grew up in the digital era, and their works respond to an age obsessed with digital culture and imagery, creating dialogues between technology, film and video art.

The programme will contain a new commission by Taiwanese artist, Wu Chi-Yu, entitled Reading List. The film – made in three Malaysian cities – George Town, Tanah Merah and Kota Bharu. Wu Chi-Yu will interview local communities, documenting their reactions/interactions with books, articles and literature forbidden in northern Malaysia. Interviews will be with booksellers about the trading and trafficking of such books, underground reading networks, and investigations into books banned for relating to “problematic” racial and religious ideologies.

Supported by Arts Council England, Leicester’s Phoenix Cinema & Arts Centre and OSMOSIS Audiovisual Media Festival.
