Posters

During screenings, we will also try to exhibit posters at various places in the garden. The screenprinted poster showing the technical setup – from solarpanel via battery to projector – comes in two versions:

You can see the influence of Buenos Aires street advertising in our yellow-red screenprinted poster above. Another poster, originally made by Kristina Müntzing for her outdoors installation TO: FROM:, is designed by graphic maestros All The Way To Paris, and features an interview with artist and filmmaker Julian D’Angiolillo. Julian has written the book La Desplaza about the grey economy in Parque Rivadavia, a park in Buenos Aires. This park is where we first came across the Cine Libre Parque Abierto, which was a big influence on our own outdoors cinema. The poster takes the form of a wall-newspaper, and is titled New Rooms For Social Exchange/Intimacy In Public Space.

In future seasons, the cinema will try to commission new posters by invited artists, or exhibit existing works by artists who might fit a given theme. More info on this will appear forthwith!

CTAYKA!

Early attempt at solarpowered outdoor cinema. In Shiryaevo the House of Culture was closed to the public, so we built a cinemascreen for the lawn outside, and used the sun as a projector for a shadow theatre. Pictured is our recreation of the first frame of the first film made by Sergei Eisenstein, after he quit agitprop street theatre and  turned to film instead. Ctayka, meaning Strike, performed by the kids of Shiryaevo for the 2011 biennale.

It’s a Sunshine Socialist Cinema!

An outdoor cinema powered by solar panels. Re-distributing surplus of light from day to night. A Sunshine Socialist Cinema, showing films that provide fuel for discussions of general leftwing topics, or socialism. Free entrance, open to all interested parties.

Run by Kalle Brolin, Kristina Müntzing, together with a study group in the ABF (the Workers Educational Association).
