Surveillance film suggestions

The next film co-operative series will be on the theme of surveillance. The films for all our series are suggestions from people who come to the screenings (whether they are members or not), so please post up your suggestions as comments here.

Any surveillance related suggestions and good speakers are welcome. It’s worth bearing in mind that we normally screen things that are not screened regularly.

    FACELESS (AT/UK 2007), CCTV sci-fi fairy tale by Manu Luksch
    soundtrack: mukul, voice-over: Tilda Swinton, piano music: Rupert Huber, co-produced by Amour Fou and Ambient Information Systems

    synopsis: 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.

    “RealTime orients the life of every citizen. Eating, resting, going to work, getting married – every act is tied to RealTime. And every act leaves a trace of data – a footprint in the snow of noise…” (excerpt of FACELESS)
