Open Studio and Film Screenings with SuperKaleidoscope — Saturday 9 February, 11am to 5pm
Join SuperKaleidoscope for their Open Studio @ Artspace featuring 'FAIL BETTER' a curated screening of three films: 'Deep Water', 'Burden of Dreams' and 'Waiting for Godot'. Refreshments provided.
Saturday 9th February 2013
Screenings 11 – 5pm
This selection of films is part of a larger curatorial project currently in development exploring notions of failure in reference to the ancient Greek myths of Icarus and Sisyphus.
The exhibition (taking place later in 2013) will revere romantic quests for the sublime, taken on with purpose and abandon, whilst investigating the latent 'failure' that lies in all such acts. The project will also investigate physical and emotional endurance, and address the melancholy, and sense of poetic absurdity, associated with our inevitable human failings and longings.Films Screening time: 11am
'Deep Water' (2006)
Directed by Louise Osmond.
Duration: 92 minutes
A film that reconstructs Donald Crowhurst's disastrous 1968 solo round-the-world yacht race voyage which encountered early difficulties and was later found to have been secretly abandoned. Screening time: 1pm
‘Burden of Dreams’ (1982)
Directed by Les Blank.
Duration: 93 minutes
The documentary depicting the chaotic production of Werner Herzog's epic ‘Fitzcarraldo’, showing how the film managed to get made despite problems that would have floored a less obsessively driven director. Screening time: 3pm
'Waiting for Godot' (2001)
Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg.
Duration: 120 minutes
From the Beckett on film Series, an amazing blend of comedy, high wit and an almost unbearable poignancy in a funny yet heartbreaking image of man's fate.
