A Panopticon in Burnley (2007, 20.9MB, 1:45 min)

Great short by Giles Perkins about a piece of public art by
Tonkin Liu
situated on a hillside outside Burnley, UK.
I love Giles’s Super 8 work (folk might remember
his catalogue of British seaside bathing huts here last year, don’t
know whether we’ve re-posted it yet, but we will,
gentle viewer, we will) & there’s an added bonus in the sound
of those beautiful Lancashire vowels – ‘uor ouwses’ – on the soundtrack.

Brand Upon The Brain, a new feature film by Guy Maddin, tours the US this summer accompanied with a live orchestrations by Ensemble Sospeso.
Maddin’s fantastically extravagant Super 8 films are always enchanting and the additional elements of live music, sound effects and narration by quirky celebs is sure to delight cinephiles of all ages. I was lucky enough to catch it in NYC last week with Crispin Glover as a very charming narrator, but the three Foley artists nearly stole the show. You can see them hard at work in their lab coats in the rehearsal video. Looks like it will have further distribution later this year with recorded soundtrack and narration by Isabella Rossellini.

Strange Culture documents the case of artist and professor Steven Kurtz
and geneticist Robert Ferrell, accused in 2004 by the U.S. Justice Department
of “bioterrorism” and currently awaiting trial.
The case threatens to set dangerous precedent by eroding the boundary
between civil and criminal law, and by criminalizing those who legitimately
and legally criticize government policy.
By Lynn Hershman Leeson.
