LSFF: Special Event: MicroMacro Film - A Cosmonaut's Trip + Introduction

12 Jan 2016

A programme looking at the role of space exploration in experimental film, featuring archive footage by pioneers of early cinema alongside animation and contemporary artists’ moving image works. 

In parallel with the exhibition Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age at the Science Museum in London, we investigate cinematic reactions to outer space, from the first footage filmed through a telescope to contemporary works by artists interested in topics such as gravity and its loss, space exploration and representation of the limitless. 

Programme curated by Giulia Saccogna. With introductions by Doug Millard, Senior Curator of the Cosmonauts exhibition at Science Museum, and Dr Mike Allen, Senior Lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London and author of Live From the Moon: Film, Television and the Space Race. Visit the MicroMacro film website for further information.
