The City is the Film, Katri Walker

The City is the Film from Katri Walker on Vimeo.

A Walls of Light Moving Image Commission. This is one of 6 artist films commissioned by Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Art and Creative Scotland, as part of the celebrations surrounding the handover of the Commonwealth Games from Delhi to Glasgow in October 2010.

Almost everything comes to us through some media prism, which, in turn, colours not just our view of this life, but our own self-definition. 'The City is the Film' takes its title from a line in 'A City', a poem by the late Edwin Morgan, and uses it to build an alternative, intimate, collaged portrait of Glasgow and its diverse inhabitants. Each individual is from, descended from or has lived in one of the 71 countries that will compete in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. As each voice transforms the words of the poem, each individual takes ownership of the place they now call home while simultaneously questioning the ability of film itself to convey the truth of a place.

Directed, Camera & Edited by Katri Walker

Sound by EMIT Production Assistant: Louise Irwin

Poem: 'A City' by Edwin Morgan taken from Collected Poems 1996. Published by Carcanet Press Ltd.

Henry Coombes: Wednesday Night Open Forum

6 October, 5pm in the Art School Union Bar

GSA graduate Henry Coombes talks about embracing your inner child in the pursuit of making art, and presents the premier of his new film ‘Just Say Cheese’. We welcome Henry back following his summer Mackintosh Museum exhibition ‘Magic Towards Your Face’.

Kicked off by the wildly successful September Pecha Kucha event, The Wednesday Night Open Forum is an enjoyable series of talks and events designed to be cross-school, cross-platform, cross-disciplinary, some of which might even just make you cross... This series includes lectures, screenings and panel discussions. Expect some lively debates on art, design, architecture, and broader ideas that the GSA is concerned about.

Talks are free and open to the public and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
