CIRCUIT and the Adam Art Gallery are proud to present the Wellington launch of Thick Cinema, a one-night-only presentation of five new works for cinema produced by contemporary New Zealand artists Fiona Amundsen, John Di Stefano, Sam Hamilton, Kim Pieters, and Joyce Campbell.

Curated by Mercedes Vicente, each artist in Thick Cinema was asked to make a work of up to ten minutes that considers the role of the body and the senses in producing meaning in the experience of cinema. Shot in New Zealand, Japan, USA and Italy, the five resulting works engage variously with the legacy of fascism, the sexual union of eels, public gardens, the sunset, and memory.

The CIRCUIT Artist Cinema Commissions are an annual programme produced by CIRCUIT with the support of Creative New Zealand. Each year an internationally-based curator is invited to devise a theme and select five to six New Zealand artists to respond. This year’s curator-at-large is London-based Mercedes Vicente.

This screening of Thick Cinema is presented by CIRCUIT in association with the Adam Art Gallery.

Sam Mendes has created a terrible and barbarous trek, one that we appreciate all the more for being catapulted right into the midst of this ear-splitting melee from the film's opening sequence. More>>
