Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces and Filmonik are delighted to be able to host a special preview screening of Headlands Lookout, a new 28 minute film by Jacob Cartwright & Nick Jordan, made during their collaborative residency at Headlands Center for the Arts, near San Francisco.
The experimental documentary film is centred on the Marin Headlands: a dramatic stretch of Pacific coastline at the entrance to San Francisco Bay. Featuring abandoned gun encampments and missile sites, Beat poetry, fog-shrouded hills, ancient redwood forests and Zen philosophy, the film traverses the area’s cultural and natural landscape, exploring and documenting a ‘wild’ landscape mediated by human activity.

DATE/PLACE: Wednesday, June 25 2014. Doors open 7.30pm, film starts 8pm. Followed by Q&A.
