Presentation about Ray Harryhausen at UK Canterbury Anifest 2012

"Ray Harryhausen is known as the godfather of stop motion animation, having worked on classic films such as Jason and the Argonauts, Clash of the Titans and Sinbad. Ray Harryhausen stands as a beacon to today's fantasy filmmakers as the creator who inspired directors such as George Lucas, Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg.

As Ray can no longer attend events, this talk will be given by Tony Dalton, curator of the Ray Harryhausen collection and co–author of Ray's books about his film work. Tony Dalton will be bringing a selection of Ray's models to the talk."

(The Marlowe Theatre, UK)

Annual international film festival and conference: Cine-Excess VI

"Cine–Excess VI was entitled 'Transglobal Excess: The Art and Atrocity of Cult Adaptation' and took place at the Odeon Covent Garden and the Italian Cultural Institute, London between the 24–26th May 2012. The event focused on global adaptations of cult narratives, genres, themes and icons across a broad range of media and fiction formats. From pulp novels into pulp horror films and recent big budget blockbuster remakes of marginal midnight movies, to nationally defined interpretations of the pre–established extreme, the cult image remains a fascinating index of adaptation, whose wide array of remakes, renditions and realisations frequently reveals fascinating issues of nation and narrative, as well cultural, regional and historical distinction."

Otolith: sci-fi documentary

"A sci–fi documentary by The Otolith Group (Anjalika Sagar and Kodwun Eshun) [and Richard Couzins]. The film continues a long tradition from Chris Marker and Jean–Luc Godard, to Black Audio Collective. A film essay based on new newsreels and classic archive material. The guiding principle behind the film is the destabilisation of the traditional concept of time as a linear, progressive process. Here time is more relative: By locating ourselves in the future we can look back at the past from a new perspective and thereby generate the potential to create alternatives to the present. The directors call this 'Post–potential futures,' and have directed a sci–fi story about a woman who has to stay in outer space because the earth has become inaccessible to humans. Her voice guides us through a narrative interweaving public versions and private memories from a new radicalised and reflective perspective. A unique synthesis of fiction and documentary.

Director: The Otolith Group (Anjalika Sagar, Kodwo Eshun), Richard Couzins)"
