Themed Playlist: Venice

A nostalgic playlist about Venice comprising lesser known and expected films. Not the usual Venice playlist.

Themed Playlist: Black Lives in Philadelphia

Jeff Schreible (KCL),a Philadelphian in London, reflects on representations of Black lives in this diverse city– lives often erased from mainstream representations of the city, but clearly visible and vibrant in the list he offers.

Themed Playlist: Out to market: Ports and pipelines

Mining and oil exploitation have been a focus of intense fascination for filmmakers and audiences, often mythologised as conquest over nature or visions of the technological sublime and the anthropocene. But what of the material realities of these operations? Maria Velez Serna provides films that render visible the abstracted operations of planetary mining.

Themed Playlist: Seeing Stuntwork

Stuntworkers are hypervisible as spectacle but too often invisible as laborers. In this playlist, Lauren Steimer directs our attention to their work and calls attention to the need to see this labour and recognise it in the industry and beyond.
