Civil Rites, Andrea Luka Zimmerman at Tyneside Cinema

About

Tyneside Cinema is proud to present our new film commission from 2017 Artist in Residence Andrea Luka Zimmerman, made in Newcastle with local residents.

Taking as a starting point Martin Luther King’s 1967 speech, given on receipt of his honorary doctorate, from the University of Newcastle, Civil Rites explores how the core themes of poverty, racism and war continue to haunt our lives.

 It listens to the voices of Newcastle citizens as they think through their responses to these themes, and locates these voices in dialogue with key sites of resistance from across the Tyneside region and across the centuries. It seeks to learn what has changed (or not) in the lives of people in Newcastle today.

Each location in Civil Rites is filmed in a single fixed shot, and the whole sequence moves from dawn to dusk across the city. Each image takes in the found life of the location at a particular moment, without staging or planned intervention. Accompanying alternate images are edited responses from more than two dozen interviews conducted with older and recently arrived residents, housed and un-housed, community organisers, passers-by, educators and others.

The preview on Thursday 7 December will feature an in conversation event with artist Andrea Luka Zimmerman abd some of the project participants.
