Plymouth University researcher Dr Allister Gall is screening his film Everything Imperfect at the ‘Sightlines: Filmmaking in the Academy’ conference, RMIT University, Australia.
Everything Imperfect was made in 2013 and submitted alongside his PhD thesis. The film utilised diary/documentary footage of micro-cinema events organised as part of the practice, films submitted for the project, filmed interviews with participants, a collaborative/participatory B-movie, as well as personal home movie footage and text. Underpinning this was the dialectic relationship between DIY subculture, ‘punk’ and film practice.
Sightlines is a two-day event that focuses on the developing field of filmmaking as a form of academic research.
