A Hundred Parts, A Hundred Faces continues
Series includes a moving image exhibition by filmmaker Rebecca E Marshall before screenings from 13 February to 16 March.
Filmmaker Rebecca E Marshall has been an avid diary writer since the age of 13 and also began to film vibrant moments from her everyday life. She is currently working on a PhD looking at self portrait in film called ‘A Hundred Parts, A Hundred Faces.‘
As part of the PhD, Rebecca will be hosting a number of local events and has created an exhibition to appear at the Electric Palace in the coming months.
13 February – 16 March, 7.15pm-8pm before each film screening at Electric Palace (see our listings)
See an exhibition of six moving image works by Rebecca that draw from her personal archive. The films’ titles are inspired by the work of Michel de Montaigne, one of the most influential writers of the 16th century, who tried to create an honest self-portrait including all the strengths, weaknesses, fears and joys of his daily life experiences:
- ‘Of Age,’
- ‘The Force of the Imagination,’
- ‘Of Experience,’
- ‘Of Dying,’
- ‘Of Drunkenness,’ and
- ‘That We Taste Nothing Pure.‘
