The Beekeeper
Sara Preibsch
2008 | 18 min | Colour | Digital

Sara Preibsch’s The Beekeeper, records a few moments in the later life of the beekeeper Helmut Preibsch at his home in Stockholm. Within this work Preibsch expertly manoeuvres between an exposé of his experiences as a young and impressionable protégé of the Nazi regime and his now seemingly idyllic life in Sweden, where he tends, ruminates and writes on the life of bees. 

Late Birds
Sara Preibsch
2003 | 4 min | B/W | Digital

Sara Preibsch’s Late Birds, is a fantastic and yet strangely minimal record of the view from an elevated train by night, as it meanders through London’s East End. By exposing this otherwise everyday experience to film, Preibsch transforms the nature of this journey into a dizzying non-stop phantasmagoric play of reflected light, which revolve, turn within themselves and sweep up again to create the ultimate hallucinogenic carnival ride.

Remake
Adam Roberts
2011 | 30 min | B/W | DCP

Adam Roberts Remake, reshoots the 1960’s Italian Grindhouse horror film Seddok, l'erede di Satana by Anton Giulio Majano scene for scene with the later dubbed English soundtrack, but minus the presence of any of the films characters. The story centre’s around a stripper who after being horribly disfigured in a car accident, contemplates suicide, until she meets Professor Levin who offers to heal her with a secretly developed atomic wonder drug that is able to regenerate damaged skin, but which leads to a spine-chilling result, as Levin’s growing love for her ultimately leads to a string of bloodcurdling murders.

Term
Maia Conran
2012 | 7 min | Colour | Digital

Maia Conran’s split screen work Term, mirrors a series of still and tracking video shots of the interior spaces of a disused school with its animated monochrome copy, that mimicks scene for scene the original video footage. Throughout the work Conran invites us to consider what is more real, the video of the school or its animated reconstruction, leading to a progressive condensation of reality, as the animated version slowly invades the authentic space of the video.
