A Project by Solomon Nagler, Thomas Evans and Craig Rodmore
An alternative cinema-going experience in which the interior of the movie theatre interacts with the city outside, the second iteration of the Situated Cinema project is a demountable microcinema that will be installed at various sites in Winnipeg. Through the mobility and permeability of the venue and the mingling of silent films and shifting contextual soundscapes, the project embraces the interactions and juxtapositions of the city and asks viewer-participants and five commissioned filmmakers to do the same.
The cinema will loop 16mm films by Alexandre Larose (Montreal), Alex Mackenzie (Vancouver), Caroline Monnet (Montreal/Winnipeg), Heidi Phillips (Winnipeg), and Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof (Toronto). The cinema was designed by Thomas Evans and Craig Rodmore. Solomon Nagler is coordinating curator for the project, which is accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Jon Davies.
