Tyneside Cinema’s free daily art programme in The Gallery opens with this beautiful and moving video installation - the first return to art-making by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard since their award-winning feature film 20,000 Days on Earth.
EDIT is a unique collaboration between artist-filmmakers Forsyth and Pollard, musician Joe McAlinden, writer Martin McCardie and arts producer Katie Nicoll, based on a powerful piece of music by McAlinden (founder member of Scottish bands Superstar and BMX Bandits). Inspired by the sound of the ebbing tide, McAlinden completes the rich musical score by mixing stunning vocal harmonies with the haunting sounds of one of the UK’s last working water-powered church organs. Forsyth and Pollard’s visual response is an emotional, arresting journey through loss and redemption, scripted by McCardie and starring Kate Bracken.
When: Fri 19 Sept - Thurs 09 Oct. The looped 30 minute installation plays Mon-Sat, from 10am - 5pm, and from 11am - 5pm on Sundays
Where: Tyneside Cinema (The Gallery, 3rd floor), 10 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, NE1 6QG
Tyneside Cinema presents EDIT for the first time in England in the first exhibition of the work in a gallery setting, following its premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in June 2014.
