Everything Lives - World Premiere
Huw Hawl - UK,2016 24mins
English W/English Subtitles
My father tells me that time travels through him, before him and after him, as if he were on a platform watching a train slowly passing by. It seems that reaching a milestone in age has brought up questions of ‘time left’. But how can there be an end to anything as infinite as your own time? Part observation, part performance, and a collaboration between father and son, Everything Lives looks at how Ken experiences time in the barns where he works; the time he spends playing, the time unique to painting or the time it takes to build a whole life.
Wahl's recent projects include Action Space (2016, 86mins), a film about the radical inflatable arts collective started in 1968. The film was awarded the Prix d’Argent at FILAF film festival 2016 and has shown at various film festivals. Previously he made To Hell with Culture (2014, 56mins) an Arts Council funded film about the life, work and politics of art critic, poet and anarchist Herbert Read; and Negotiating Representation in Israel and Palestine (2012, 15mins) a Royal Photographic Society funded audiovisual piece on how local photographers deal with issues of representing victimhood and oppression in the occupied territories.
