Selection 2: Morgan Quaintance (A)
These two programs present a selection of films from one of the most exciting emerging voices in artist-made cinema. Morgan Quaintance is a London-based writer, musician, broadcaster, and curator. All Quaintance’s short films unfold in time — recollection and the connection between the continuously moving present and the past form a common thread throughout his texturally rich work. Most of his short films rely on these temporal relations and add up to an exploration of buried or forgotten histories through memory via the reconstruction of the past through photographs and archive material. On this occasion, he has compiled two programs combining his work with films by others.
