The Republics

Online Event

Dates and times

4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

 

A true meeting of artists’ minds: drawn from poet and activist Stephen Watts’ book Republic Of Dogs / Republic Of Birds, Huw Wahl’s 16mm essay film evokes the deep spirit of elegy, celebration and resistance in Watts’ work. Taking as its terrain the changing landscapes of London’s East End and the Scottish islands, and the destruction of working-class culture, The Republics brims with creative energy: ‘A documentary… whose own poetry speaks as honestly and eloquently as that of the writer it portrays’ (Gareth Evans, Moving Image Curator, Whitechapel Gallery).

Part of Cinema Versa, LIFF 2020's selection dedicated to documentary, non-fiction and music film.
