Hacked Circuit

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

In these post-Snowden revelation times, Gene Hackman’s Coppola directed embodiment of surveillance expert Harry Caul is brought into pertinent resonance with the black arts of foley artist Gregg Barbanell. Multiple layers of fabrication and imposition are laid bare by this fluidly choreographed, single-shot embodiment of control. We’re unambiguously reminded that professionalism still means invisibility, but we’ll need to tear more than our rooms apart to find that bug.


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.
