9 Oct 2018 5:00pm - 7:00pm Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road


Emily Richardson (Filmmaker)


“[…] Richardson proves once more she is a film-maker of vision and artistic integrity who always manages to extract every creative possibility from the seam she is working”
— Will Stone on Emily Richardson’s Cobra Mist (2008)


In this talk, filmmaker Emily Richardson will speak about the absent presence conjured by sound and its role in activating latent stories held in the landscape, whether urban, rural or architectural. She will show clips from a selection of her films past and present to illustrate this idea.

Emily Richardson is a filmmaker whose work explores our relationship to our physical environment and the role image making technologies play in defining, changing and shaping it. Her films are encounters with a diverse range of landscapes and sites in transition ranging from empty East End London streets, forests, North Sea oil fields, post-war tower blocks, empty cinemas and Cold War military facilities. She has recently completed a practice-led PhD at the Royal College of Art researching the translation of architectural space to filmic space through a trilogy of films about British architects’ prototype houses of the 1960s. Her films have been shown in galleries, museums and festivals internationally and are distributed by Lux, London.
