Human Flicker: The Cinema of Jun’ichi Okuyama

This special evening is dedicated to the playful cut-and-paste expanded cinema of Jun’ichi Okuyama, with live performances by the artist performing for the first time in the UK. The works range from actions applied directly to the film strip as well as a unique film made from paper, various interactions with projection beam and flicker performances.
