To accompany the first screening in the UK of Absences and (Im)possibilites: traces of an experimental cinema in Ireland, I was in conversation with Irish film-maker Vivienne Dick. Vivienne was part of a group of filmmakers whose affiliation to the music and aesthetic of punk became known as ‘No Wave’. Working mainly on Super-8, Dick’s films from this period feature many musicians from the New York punk movement, with performances and music from Lydia Lunch, James Chance, Pat Place, Adele Bertei, and Ikue Mori.
The event was organised by LUX Scotland - Glasgow Film Theatre - 11 January 2015
