WE ARE DELIGHTED TO PRESENT A FOCUS ON THE WORK OF BELGIAN FILMMAKER PIERRE-YVES VANDEWEERD DURING WHICH WE WILL BE SCREENING HIS THREE MOST RECENT FILMS – A LOOSE TRILOGY – INCLUDING THE UK PREMIERE OF THIS YEAR’S THE ETERNALS. FILMED MOSTLY IN 16MM AND SUPER 8, AND WITH SCORES FROM BRITISH AVANT-GARDE MUSICIAN RICHARD SKELTON, THESE EXTRAORDINARY WORKS INVESTIGATE THE CORRELATION BETWEEN WAR, MADNESS AND MEMORY THROUGH THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO ARE VICTIMS OF CONFLICT AND EXILE. IN THESE UNCOMPROMISING, UNCANNY AND DEEPLY ORIGINAL FILMS, VANDEWEERD COMBINES ANTHROPOLOGY, POETIC ESSAY AND PERFORMANCE TO EXPLORE THE SPACES BETWEEN ORDER AND DISORDER, REASON AND UNREASON, THE VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE.
