Cinema meets live music at this hybrid event mixing found footage with electric results. Experimental film-makers Jenna Collins and Sam Meech present two new kaleidoscopic short films, made during their Gleaners residencies in the North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University, premiering here with live soundtracks from cutting edge North West musicians.

Diving into the amateur fiction footage within the archive, Jenna Collins’ new film, in equal parts hypnotic and disruptive, will be accompanied by a performance by multi-instrumentalist Seaming To, regular collaborator with Graham Massey and Homelife (Ninja Tune).

Using dozens of archive clips, Sam Meech builds up a classic narrative with a dream-inflected twist. This epic journey will be narrated live by poet Nathan Jones of the Mercy collective with a score by Carl Brown of Wave Machines (Neapolitan).

This event is a collaboration with Abandon Normal Devices. Visit the Gleaners blog for more information.

Tickets, priced £7.50 and £5.50 (concessions), are available from the Cornerhouse Box Office on 0161 200 1500.



All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
