Chloë Bass presents screening and performance This Is A Film as a part of Counterpublic.
This Is A Film (1.8) explores what it means to turn footage into language. Using clips of family home movies found in various online archives, Chloë Bass creates a descriptive piece for the audience to hear and imagine. Where is the film: in the language? In the images that come into each listener’s head? Is it shared between us? What do we see, and how does it make a story?
This Is A Film is part of Chloë Bass’ ongoing project Obligation To Others Holds Me In My Place, a study of intimacy at the scale of the immediate family.
