Gina Czarnecki and Ulf Langheinrich present the UK premiere of their film Spintex at The Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle. Two of Czarnecki's existing films, Nascent and Infected, will also feature in the programme.
Spintex is a first collaboration between Ulf Langheinrich and Gina Czarnecki, building upon their individual careers and experience of working with dance, film, theatre, sound and installation. Filmed at an open air night club and other locations in the Ashanti region of Ghana, where Ulf Langheinrich lives, Spintex is based on a real-time transition from day to night.
In Spintex, Czarnecki and Langheinrich attempt to encapsulate the multiple, interconnected daily rhythms of physicality and mortality that resonate in the environment and the dance. Nascent is a visual and visceral journey about life, while Infected is about the relationship between the physical body in relation to the technology of the future.
The screenings will be followed by a talk by Gina Czarnecki and Atau Tanaka, Chair of Digital Media at Newcastle University, and a drinks reception.
