Plenty: Unnamed Film

PLENTY: UNNAMED FILM
London Event Gallery
Tuesday 30 August 2011, from 7pm

The free screening series PLENTY proposes a new way of looking at artists’ films by showing only a single work, regardless of its duration. Each film is given the freedom to unfold on its own terms, and the viewer is given the time and space to consider it.

Unnamed Film (Naomi Uman, 2008)

Tuesday 30 August 2011, from 7pm
UNNAMED FILM

UNNAMED FILM
Naomi Uman, Ukraine, 2008, 16mm, colour, sound, 55 minutes

Naomi Uman stepped into the Ukranian time machine in 2006. 100 years after her grandparents emigrated to the USA, the filmmaker made the reverse journey and settled in a remote village. Her film diary documents her assimilation into the customs of an ageing community, and observes a rural way of life that has changed little over the centuries.

“A hybrid of lyrical and documentary forms, hers is a cinema equally attuned to the unique textures of small-gauge celluloid and the subtleties of cultural difference.” (Light Industry)

Naomi Uman’s work addresses themes of labour, geography, immigration, language and love. She continues to live in the Ukraine, where she makes films, paints, and grows vegetables and flowers.

PLENTY is a free monthly screening series selected by Mark Webber, and forms part of the Brief Habits programme curated by Shama Khanna. Supported by Arts Council England.
