PROGRAMME 1
Strange Object


Country: UK
Year: 2020
Duration: 15'
Direction: Miranda Pennell

DCP 

The Z Unit’s operation in a world far from our own was an experiment of sorts, a test. And this place, inhabited by beings different from ourselves, served as a laboratory. A successful outcome would secure the Z Unit’s future, enabling its enterprise to expand and its methods to be applied to other worlds. An investigation into imperial image-making, and destruction. Strange Object uses aerial photographs of an undisclosed territory as the starting point for a meditation on images, erasure and the writing of history. This is the first part of an ongoing project.

Miranda Pennell

Miranda Pennell originally trained in contemporary dance and later studied visual anthropology. Pennell has produced a body of award-winning film and video work that explores forms of collective performance, whether dancers, soldiers or fight directors. Her most recent moving-image work uses colonial archives as the starting point for investigations into the colonial imaginary.
