The Secret Cinema: 3, 2010

Screening No. 3:

Sunday 18 April at 1pm

Entrance is free. All welcome!

On Sunday 18 April the film will be 375 minutes long. Due to the extreme duration of the film we will have a break in the middle. Food and drink will be available at BAC, but please feel free to bring whatever you think you might need to survive the marathon screening!

The Secret Cinema is a series of screenings and discussions exploring the medium of cinema. The times, dates and place for the screenings will be publicly announced. The title and director of the film will not be disclosed to anyone apart from those attending the event. Wishing to create a framework where our attention and engagement surpasses the attention economy, The Secret Cinema is an attempt at playing around with strategies of visibility and invisibility to explore the situations and possibilities that might open up through partial secrecy.

In a time when it is necessary to be connected, when constant communication is supposed to give you the feeling of being part of a community but this community more often than not is fragmented and physically remote, when most of us are visible through social networks and are feeding the attention economy by default – what does it mean to be together at the same time at the same place sharing a common experience, but not knowing beforehand what this experience will be?
