CALL OUT FOR 1970s HOME MOVIES, FROM IRAN or UK
We have been collecting developed and undeveloped home movies from 1970s UK and/or Iran as part of an Embedded residency at no.w.here, an artist run project space.
Embedded is funded through the Esmée Fairburn Foundation and is a joint project run by no.w.here and Sound and Music. Our project is to rework a selection of home movies at no.where’s well-stocked film processing lab in London, to create a collage of films and audio recollections from UK and Iran from 69-80.
The film installation will be a cine film collage of 70s footage from UK and Iran, looping on a projector along with audio recollections from people about the UK and Iran during the period. The installation will draw parallels between both countries in the 70s, looking at design and sound from the era before international relations combusted, splitting them apart due to oil feuds and a clash in ideologies between UK and Iran. The installation will have a specially composed audio soundtrack to go with the audio recollections as part of the no.w.here residency.
Participants can be credited if they wish, or remain anonymous. The content of the your film is irrelevant – it only need be shot in, or close to the 70s (e.g. 1969-1980), in either Iran or UK on cine film.
This is a non-commercial and personal project, the end installation will be viewed by the public in a gallery setting.
Film submissions were in either: Super 8, Standard 8, 16mm, 9.5mm.
