Event overview

Patrick Hough's 2017 Jerwood/FVU Awards work screens in the Moscow International Experimental Film festival - the first festival in Russia solely devoted to artists' moving image.

And If In A Thousand Years digitally revives elements of a Hollywood film-set after it was deliberately buried, in an act of money-saving expediency, under the dunes of the Southern California desert. Over the years, the shifting sands have gradually exposed this piece of epic landfill, bringing souvenir hunters to gather where archaeologists used to tread. It is not just fake fragments of the past that are disinterred. What hovers over the place is a spirit of uncertainty; one that questions bedrock values like ‘originality’ and ‘authenticity’.
