One of cinema’s first spectacular coups was its ability to show water in movement. This programme of eclectic early film survivals will demonstrate this natural affinity of film and fluid.

One of cinema’s first spectacular coups was its ability to show water in movement. Films of sea waves that mesmerised audiences were essentially the first art films – reveling in the simple sensory pleasure of reflected light and motion. In this programme of eclectic early film survivals Bryony Dixon, curator of silent film at the BFI, will demonstrate this natural affinity of film and fluid concluding with more recent works like the nightmare-inducing public information film Lonely Water (1973) and Peter Greenaway’s hypnotic Water Wrackets (1975).

The first part of the programme will include accompaniment by SOUNDkitchen.
