Speed of Light Films Premiere in Glasgow
Saturday 1st November 2014
SWG3, 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow, G3 8QW
NVA’s widely acclaimed public artwork Speed of Light comes to Glasgow on Saturday 1st November for an exclusive world premiere of three new short art films created in Japan, Germany and England.
SWG3 will be transformed into a pop up cinema for the special event that will feature live music from the Ghost Peloton soundtrack by electronica artist Frame Missing, visuals by NOVAK and a set by the legendary Back to Basics and Chemical Brothers tour DJ James Holroyd. Staged within this immersive setting, the films evoke the ‘life changing’ qualities described by many participants in the process of making Speed of Light.
The 3 films have been made by emerging Tokyo based director Ayumi Sakamoto (Speed of Light Yokohama) whose debut feature FORMA has recently won a major prize at the Berlin International Film Festival; McAteer Photograph of Glasgow (Speed of Light Ruhr); and independent film-maker Mark Huskisson (Ghost Peloton) whose seminal feature film ‘Home’ featured champion rider Danny MacAskill.
