All That Is Solid

Friday 25th September / 1:45PM @ The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

 A technographic study of e-recycling and neo-colonial mining filmed in the Agbogbloshie electronic waste ground in Accra and illegal gold mines of Ghana. The video constructs a mise-en-abyme as critique in order to dispel the capitalist myth of the immateriality of new technology - thus revealing the mineral weight with which the Cloud is grounded to its earthly origins.

Screening as part of the Berwick New Cinema Shorts programme. From desktop documentary to flicker film, Berwick New Cinema Shorts is a specialist programme probing facts, fictions, representations and violence. Transgressing restraints of genre, capital and expectation these are films that throb with unbounded visual imagination, are spiced with humour and expand our understandings of film and moving image.
