CCTV movie


London screening of FACELESS at LIFT festival

when: 1st of July, 20.00
where: The Lift, Southbank
FACELESS (AT/UK 2007)
a CCTV sci-fi fairy-tale by MANU LUKSCH (50 min)
voice: TILDA SWINTON
choreography: THE BALLET BOYZ
soundtrack: MUKUL
In a society under the reformed 'Real-Time' Calendar, without history nor
future, everybody is faceless. A woman panics when she wakes up one day with
a face. With the help of the Spectral Children she slowly finds out more
about the lost power and history of the human face and begins the search for
its future.

FACELESS was produced under the rules of the 'Manifesto for CCTV
Filmmakers'. The manifesto states, amongst other things, that additional
cameras are not permitted at filming locations, as the omnipresent existing
video surveillance (CCTV) is already in operation. Footage was negotiated
under the Data Protection Act 1998 over a period of four years.

The screening is part of SpeedDataRadio (starting at 18.00), a round-table
discussion mixed live to air on Resonance104.4 FM. Join Cecilia Wee and her
three-dozen guests as they discuss surveillance, the art of seeing and the
art of being seen.

Eavesdrop on multiple fascinating conversations at once and, if a chair
becomes free, direct the discussion yourself. Part conference, part
absurdist theatre, SpeedDataRadio is the activity of minds travelling at the
speed of sound.
