Essay Film Festival Prelude 3: Films from the Barrelstout Archive
Friday 9 March 6:30 – 8:30

“We came together from different experiences to a shared understanding of the films we wanted to make. Most of our films are short, no budget, homemade affairs, shot on Super 8 and slide film.
This screening includes a number of films that connect with the traditions of underground and abstract filmmaking; focusing on elements of light, colour and rhythm. Others represent entries in the diary of our lives, based on the things we enjoy - music, films and friendship. Finally, we want our films to be enjoyed – ‘we require filmic pleasure!’” (Bev Zalcock + Sara Chambers, Barrelstout Productions)
