DESCRIPTION

Filmaktion is the name used by a group of filmmakers who performed together during an intense period of activity in the early 1970s. The core members – Malcolm Le Grice, William Raban, Gill Eatherley and Annabel Nicolson – are major figures in the development of experimental film in the UK. An ambitious series of events in the Tanks will revisit some of the key performances and installations that allowed these artists to radically reshape the experience of film and the cinematic viewing space. Highlighting the importance of collective practice to British artists’ film-making, this week-long series of events will celebrate Filmaktion’s radical expansion of the role of both cinema and the spectator.
