BALTIC in partnership with Third Films presents Sunday, a collection of films by one of Britian’s most exciting emerging filmakers Duane Hopkins. Sunday, is a multi-screen film installation where Hopkins has created a series of works that explore the grammatical possibilities of film beyond the formal constraints of narrative cinema. Like much of Hopkin’s cinema work Sunday deals with the rural British youth and the relationship between identity, psychology and environment.
The exhibition will feature five works using the different spaces of BALTIC’s Level 1, presenting scenes that work visually, sonically and physically. Three boys are presented as the protagonists in several filmic essays that are documentary in subject and imagery, yet discursive in form and structure.
BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art presents The Barefoot Lone Pilgrim, a video by David Blandy. Blandy’s work deals with his problematic relationship with popular culture, integrating fantasy adventures with real life in a search for his cultural position in the world.
BALTIC presents a six week screening of Duncan Campbell's powerful film Bernadette, composed of archival material, new footage, animation and scripted voiceover. The film tells the story of Bernadette Devlin, a Northern Irish Republican who became the youngest woman to be elected to the House of Commons.
