An Exeter filmmaker has been given the opportunity to launch his new flick at swanky Tate Britain in London tomorrow.
John Sealey, who is a two-times Exeter Phoenix Media Bursary award winner, was commissioned earlier this year to produce a film for the Arnolfini Gallery
Snappily-titled The Black Moving Cube: Black Figuration & The Moving Image, the project was launched with a panel discussion of film industry professionals and screened in July.
However, the shebang received so much critical acclaim that it has been given the chance to go on a national tour – which is where Tate Britain comes in.
You can get an idea of what all the fuss is about by catching Sealey’s latest series of short films, titled From Black Germans To Blaxploitation and focusing on diaspora narratives (ah, that old chestnut), as part of the Exeter Phoenix’s Two Short Nights film fest next Thursday, from 2-4pm. Tickets are Ł3 (Ł2 conc).
Look out for lots more Two Short Nights’ bumf on D+CFilm in the next week or so.
