Kinemastik – the Malta-based NGO that delivers cultural programmes based around screenings, talks, exhibitions and concerts – is back. There’s new dates, and a new curator, and it all sounds pretty damn artsy-licious.
First in line for the upcoming Kinemastik events is 1977 film Le Couple Temoin (The Model Couple). The story is set in 1977 France when the Ministry of the Future chooses two “normal,” white, middle-class citizens, Claudine (Anémone) and Jean-Michel (André Dussolier), for a national experiment. The film watches the couple as they are monitored and displayed for six months in a model apartment outfitted with state-of-the-art products and nonstop surveillance.
And if you want to watch them too, you just need to head down to the British Legion pub in Valletta on the 22nd February.
This first film will be part of a series curated by Roxman. There will be two other screenings, on the 1st March and 8th March 2017.
Roxman, also known as Roxanne Gatt is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. She’s been awarded the Chris Garnham Prize (2015) and the Magnum Showcase Online Photography Award (2013) for her work. Her most recent exhibitions include Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Liverpool, Show 2015, Royal College of Art, London and Draw, Hockney Gallery, London.
So get ready to get your art on, because you know the next selections for Kinemastik Film Club are going to be crazy good!
