Outer Space Film Club #2
Public · Hosted by Outer Space
Watch films at home and then join us online to discuss! Guest selectors will offer their response to the film to get the conversation started.
Please join us for our second fortnightly film club, hosted by Daniel McKewen. Daniel has selected Citizenfour (2014) (1hr 53mins) dir. Laura Poitras. You will receive a link to the Zoom conversation once you have registered for the event.
ABOUT FILM: CITIZENFOUR is a real life thriller, unfolding by the minute, giving audiences unprecedented access to filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s encounters with Edward Snowden in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA).
ABOUT DANIEL: Daniel McKewen is a Brisbane-based artist whose practice investigates the intersections of contemporary art, popular culture, economics, politics, and screen-based mass media. Working appropriatively across a range of media including video installation, his work creatively and speculatively examines how the formal and symbolic conventions of these institutionalised structures operate culturally and politically. The resulting artworks explore and express how our subjective and inter-subjective interactions with these structures can allow us to make sense of our own social experiences.
