Green (Un)Pleasant Land at CCANW Exeter

Saturday 2 September 2006 19:30

In a suitably rural forest setting just outside of Exeter, animate! and Halloween join forces to present a spectacular multi-media event mixing film and live music at the brand-new Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World.

The Memory Band, featuring Stephen Cracknell plus special guests, present a live soundtrack to the 70s occult thriller classic The Wicker Man (Robin Hardy, UK 1973, 85 min) and re-create the haunting mystical score originally written by Paul Giovanni including the infamous Willow’s Song.

This is followed by a selection of animate! commissions offering unexpected aspects of landscape and the countryside, with the recent multi-award-winning Rabbit using 1950’s educational stickers in a macabre and mystical short story matching the rustic horror of The Wicker Man, plus two works from local Devon filmmaker Kayla Parker including Sunset Strip, her hand-made collage of 365 West Country sunsets.

The full list of short films: Cage of Flame by Kayla Parker, Flight by Dryden Goodwin, Jumping Joan by Petra Freeman, Miles from Anywhere by Gary Carpenter, Rabbit by Run Wrake and Sunset Strip by Kayla Parker.
