PPG Nuclear War Film Series: UNCLEAR About Nuclear War

December 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

UNCLEAR ABOUT NUCLEAR WAR

Join us for the start of our Nuclear War Film Series on Third Friday Durham, December 15, 2017. Kicking us off is Durham Cinematheque with Unclear About Nuclear War. No ticket required. Films will be playing on a loop throughout the evening.

The installation Unclear about Nuclear War will feature Cold War atomic bomb films and Cold War television commercials for consumer products, layered with very large abstract and “unreadable” images. Cinematheque director Tom Whiteside has designed this show specifically for Power Plant Gallery.

“I love to work in big empty spaces, especially ones with white walls. Compared to a traditional theater setting, a big space presents so many opportunities. The image is not locked in to one size and one place. I am an experimental filmmaker and I appreciate the opportunity to experiment with the presentation of the image – in this case the presentation is equally as important as the content.”

And don’t miss The Way Things Can Happen /an alternate history of nuclear war by Erin Johnson on view January 2–March 3, 2018 at the Power Plant Gallery.
