dir. Daniel Fawcett
‘Splendor Solis is beautifully made – the spirits of Entr’acte and Derek Jarman live on.’ Mark Cousins
Daniel Fawcett's SPLENDOR SOLIS is a twin screen cine-poem that has been compiled from footage filmed over 17 years. It features everything from home movies, unfinished films, video diaries, video experiments, filmed performances and behind the scenes footage.
This loosely chronological cinematic wandering charts a journey in which filmmaking is used as a tool for personal exploration of inner and outer worlds, where cinema becomes an arena for rituals of self-discovery, healing and transformation. SPLENDOR SOLIS is a personal celebration of cinema, creativity, play, collaboration, friendship and all the splendours under the sun.
Plus live music from Stereocilia, Louise's Guidelines, Ocean Floor and more TBC.
