Filmaktion was a loose-knit group of British filmmakers who worked and performed together in the early 1970s.



Endorsing a more active, participatory experience of cinema, they re-imagined the possibilities for film projection as a live event using multiple screen projections, live film performances and installations. For the Tanks, three of the core members, Gill Eatherley, Malcolm Le Grice and William Raban stage screenings of their original works, incorporating elaborate projections and arrangements to create a sculptural, immersive and embodied space for cinema.
