Manchester's HOME has announced it is to host a season focused on the act of filmmaking itself.
The season is the first to be announced following confirmation that HOME will reopen on 17 May if all goes to plan in the UK Government coronavirus roadmap for England.
HOME’s creative director for film and culture Jason Wood said: “At a moment when cinemas have been closed for a protracted period and in an era in which streaming films has become commonplace, The Reverse Gaze is a reminder of the art and endeavour of filmmaking. It’s also a celebration of the physical screen space, a place where people come together, commune and better understand society.”
Other highlights in the line-up, include Michael Powell's groundbreaking exploration of voyeurism Peeping Tom, Dziga Vertov’s early documentary Man With A Movie Camera and a preview of Censor - about a film censor's attempts to solve the mystery of her sister's disappearance.
Tickets will go on sale after the Prime Minister’s announcement on 10 May about Step 3 of the roadmap out of lockdown, which will confirm the reopening.
The full line-up is below:
- The State Of Things
- Peeping Tom
- Beware Of A Holy Whore
- Day For Night
- Heart Of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse
