Two weeks ago, on Tuesday, 17 May 2016, the Derek Jarman Lab has presented two new works and one work in progress at the Birkbeck Cinema, London. All three works combining film and research in new ways.
Director: Lily Ford
Little is known about the unmarried mothers who had their babies taken in by London’s Foundling Hospital in the nineteenth century. This short film explores the predicament of these ‘blank mothers’; it is supported by an AHRC Cultural Engagement Fellowship.
Spaces of Psychoanalysis
Director: Bartek Dziadosz
Spaces of Psychoanalysis makes extensive use of drawings and collages offering a panoramic view of the Freudian legacy’s contemporary inflections and elaborations.
Lux Imperium (work in progress)
Directors: Noah Angell and Francis Gooding
Producer: Sarah Joshi
Lux Imperium is a new film project composed from hundreds of home movies and privately edited amateur films made during the dissolution of the British Empire.
The directors Noah Angell and Francis Gooding introduced the project and discussed the unique archive material and the ethical and scholarly issues that arise while working with it.
