The Afterlight


An immersive cinematic collage assembled from early 20th century cinema, The Afterlight documents the physical presence of over three hundred actors who are no longer alive and must reconcile themselves to a life lived solely through the performances they committed to celluloid. This ghostly atmosphere is reflected in the materiality of the work itself; as only a single 35mm print exists, each projection gradually yields itself to an organic cycle of deterioration and death. Celebrated filmmaker Charlie Shackleton has crafted an intricate and provocative piece of work which pays homage both to the affective power and the inherent fragility of cinema.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with director Charlie Shackleton.
