ASPECT film series: 'FACT OR FICTION' The Machine in the Ghost

Wednesday 5 August 2015 7.30pm, The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

Working with the festival's theme "Fact or Fiction", for the the sixth and final screening of the first ASPECT season, we present recent films by Glasgow-based artists Luke Fowler and Duncan Campbell. Both films tackle particular pasts to focus on how history itself is made and remade.

Fowler's film Depositions draws on archival BBC footage of traveller communities in Scotland, whilst - this year's Turner Prize winner - Duncan Campbell's Make It New John circles the story of the DeLorean car factory in Belfast. Strong and urgent films both, by revisiting our recent past they inevitably illuminate present currents too.

The film festival's recently appointed director, Peter Taylor, will be on hand to give an introduction.

Tickets are £5 / £3 concession and can be purchased via The Maltings website here.
