FIELD RECORDINGS 3 Documenting Complexity

Wednesday 14 October 2020 at WORM Rotterdam

Documenting Complexity

For this special event of Field Recordings, we bring together a collection of films that trace the intersection of experimental documentary practices, anthropology, and activism.

It’s the first time that T. Kim-Trang Tran’s The Blindness Series will be screened in the Netherlands. This experimental video series investigates the metaphors, ideologies, and technologies related to visuality and blindness.

The 2019 montage of Golden Snail Opera will also have its Dutch premiere at Field Recordings.

Field Recordings is a platform for contemporary anthropological cinema, sound art and landscape film.

Field Recordings is committed to collective learning and intersectional methodologies, as much as we encourage debate on lesser spoken topics in cinema and anthropology.

This event is part of Documenting Complexity, a collaborative research project between University of Groningen, HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, VersPers, MU Hybrid Art House, Sound and Vision, and WORM.

Documenting Complexity is funded by NWO Smart Culture.
