All Light, Everywhere
Theo ANTHONY USA 109 Min PG Southeast Asian Premiere
A visually stunning exploration of the complicity of the moving image in the historical development of military weaponry and surveillance technology.
This award-winning documentary offers a thought-provoking challenge to our belief in the camera’s unbiased objectivity. Building off of the observer effect—that observation changes what is observed—the film examines how historical developments in visual technology have weaponised our faith in the truth of images to support repressive worldviews and practices such as racial profiling.
All Light, Everywhere
HAN Ok-hi South Korea 7 Min PG (Brief Nudity)
A filmmaker struggles for artistic freedom in the face of violent repression.
Made during the period of martial law in South Korea, this experimental 16mm film is a graphic visual allegory of the violence and agony inherent in the filmmaking process. In a performance that grows increasingly macabre, Han snips, splices and projects film strips and drapes them over her body in a dark studio lit by the glare of a projector beam. The film suggests that an artist existing in a repressive regime must make painful and even self-destructive choices. At the same time, her camera is a tool with revolutionary potential. In the words of Solanas and Getino: “The camera is a gun that shoots 24 frames per second.”
