Artists’ film and video from Taiwan’s OSMOSIS Festival

October 17 • various UK venues

A Private Collection, Wu Chi-Yu, 2016

New artists’ film and video curated from OSMOSIS, Taiwan’s leading film, video and music festival. A varied collection of film and video by some of Taiwan’s cutting edge artists working with moving image and creative technology.

The programme will contain a new commission by Taiwanese artist, Wu Chi-Yu, entitled ‘Reading List‘. The film has been made in three Malaysian cities – George Town, Tanah Merah and Kota Bharu. Wu Chi-Yu will interview local communities, documenting their reactions/interactions with books, articles and literature forbidden in northern Malaysia. Interviews will be with booksellers about the trading and trafficking of such books, underground reading networks, and investigations into books banned for relating to “problematic” racial and religious ideologies.

Supported by Arts Council England, Phoenix Cinema & Arts Centre and OSMOSIS Audiovisual Media Festival.
