11 August 2012
Join groundbreaking film director and video artist Charles Atlas and Meltdown director Antony for the UK premiere screening of TURNING. Explore innocence, metamorphosis and modern femininity through an incredible blend of music, projected imagery, interview and live performance.
The film documents Charlie Atlas' 2006 collaboration with Antony and the Johnsons. Featuring Antony's haunting vocals and music as the soundtrack to a live concert, TURNING stars 13 striking women from New York City.
While each model slowly turns on a platform on stage, Atlas creates intimate and hypnotic video portraits which are then captured, processed and projected on a giant screen.
After the film screening, Charles Atlas is in conversation with Antony for a special Q&A.
