Specialised Technique


4 February - 3 March



Mascara Film Club presents an online screening of Specialised Technique (2018) a film by Onyeka Igwe.

William Sellers and the Colonial Film Unit developed a framework for colonial cinema, this included slow edits, no camera tricks and minimal camera movement. Hundreds of films were created in accordance to this rule set. In an effort to recuperate black dance from this colonial project, Specialised Technique attempts to transform this material from studied spectacle to livingness.

Duration: 7 minutes
