This film program forges a rare intergenerational dialogue between two artist-filmmakers who work with the essay form as a means to subvert and reimagine the archive, its relationship to history and memory.
András Szirtes was born in Budapest, and has been making experimental films since the 1970s’. He is known for pioneering the diary form, integrating radical performance intervention and collage techniques, into an unclassifiable mode of an essay film form.
Dalia Neis was born in London and has been made experimental essay films which combine found material and diary forms, to explore alternative, overlooked histories and imaginary archives. She is also a writer and performer.
