Filmmaking is often used as a tool to understand and reshape the world. Students from Kingston School of Art and HEAD-Genève created a series of short films within a 24-hour period to document and reflect on sites of activism in London. These films animate often hidden spaces through discovery and contextualisation. They also comment and critique through the use of montage techniques such as mixing and cutting, contrast and overlay.
Filmmakers: Thomas Cerato, Misato Ehara, Etienne Kurzaj, Ruth Mitchell, Virgilio Paricio de Castro
Using montage techniques, MINUS shows the loss of queer spaces in London by juxtaposing footage of London’s thriving LGBTQ+ scene in the 1970’s and 1980’s with external shots of the now closed clubs.
