Nadeem Din-Gabisi

  • Screening & Talk

Event overview

Nadeem Din-Gabisi's MASS (2020) will screen at the 11th edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival 2021, as part of the MOVING STILL programme. There will be a live screening and Q&A with Nadeem on Friday 30th April, and the film will also be available to screen throughout the festival.

Focusing our attention on the invisible transmission of radio waves within the urban environment, Nadeem Din-Gabisi's MASS embodies an intangible ‘spirit’ or ‘signal’ that characterises various aspects of contemporary Black experience around which people identify and congregate. Featuring contributions from musician Coby Sey, artist-filmmaker Rhea Storr, and Director of Photography Shivani Hassard, and filmed on 16mm, 8mm and digital video, MASS gives poetic expression to this unseen spectrum of background signals and contrasts them with vivid depictions of a shared and intimate private space of sanctuary, solidarity and celebration.

MASS (2020) by Nadeem Din-Gabisi was commissioned for Frequencies, a curatorial project initiated by Cynthia Silveira. Commissioned and produced by Film and Video Umbrella (Producer Leah McGurk) as part of FVU's Curatorial Practice Award. FVU is supported by Arts Council England.
