Long-time collaborators composer Cassie Kinoshi and visual artist Anne Verheij join us at LSFF for an in-depth exploration of their experimental film and immersive installation work together so far. Initially forming their creative partnership in 2014 after meeting during their respective studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, Kinoshi and Verheij have since built a portfolio of works which explore a multitude of inner dialogues drawing from the female experience, the journey to re-opening oneself after trauma and our innate desire to form connections and communicate. The conversation will by hosted by Anu Henriques (Skin Deep).
On An Empty Stomach (2014) TRAILER
[ How might an intuitive painterly approach to film engender a spatial encounter? ] On An Empty Stomach tells the tale of my hunger for the moving image. Whilst traveling between points A and B, I have encountered many wondrous worlds of light, movement and abstraction. This made me forget all about time, surroundings and the social etiquettes in public spaces, thus resulting in almost getting locked in the space between the aircraft and terminal building at Gatwick Airport.
Undercurrent (2017) TRAILER
We find ourselves uncomfortably close with a dancer on screen. Are we allowed to possess her?
She becomes aware that she is no longer alone. On the verge of losing possession of her body she takes control, turning her attention to the camera and the audience behind it, encroaching on them like a predator stalking its prey.
OFFSET (2018) TRAILER
There is no guidebook on how to survive the hurricane of pain when you find yourself betrayed. Trapped between walls of pain, you try to fight your way out.
How much of the pain do you need in order to survive, what time do you get to test the truth of your expectations and how much do you let yourself be told?
In fight for breath, love balances us sharply on hope’s blade.
e c h o (2021) TRAILER
our surroundings, our thoughts, our voices, our memories, our journeys echo is the new immersive film installation from long-time collaborators composer Cassie Kinoshi and visual artist Anne Verheij. The installation is a sonic and visual exploration of the individual journeys taken within ourselves and alongside each other as we collectively navigate the city of London.
