Paul Hutchinson, film lover and founder of Bedford Film Festival takes us on a journey through the film scenes in his head. From the classics to the most recent, films are more than stories to show and tell, but to express one's emotions to one or hundred people.  And through the movie pictures are how people can be touched and understand the story teller from behind the camera.

Artist and Filmmaker Don Levy

BY ALEXANDER STOREY GORDON
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Alexander Storey Gordon is a curator, artist and writer currently based in Fife and Glasgow. Sitting productively between these roles Storey Gordon curates and makes film, text, performances and events that focus on how the relationship between our bodies, our built environment, and others is mediated through contemporary art, film and literature. In his curatorial, art and written work this is achieved through a rigorous experimentation with the structures, codes, and conventions that govern and channel our reading of experience, time and event.

For GI Pecha Kucha, Storey Gordon will give a presentation on the artist and filmmaker Don Levy and the exhibition Don Levy: Time Regained, presented by Storey Gordon at SWG3 as part of GI 2016. Touching on wider themes of time, edit and the problem of the archive, the presentation will collage together different materials from exhibition research.
