CLOSES AND OPENS a film by Sapphire Goss
In 2018 we started work on a film about how an old hospital was regenerating as an institute for the future. The Edinburgh Futures Institute is, just like the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh before it, designed to be open to everyone. While the Infirmary was built to isolate one kind of contagion, the Institute meant to promote another, a contagion of ideas to help us live with the future. But how do you see the future or, for that matter, the past? Our best laid plans for launching the film were cast agley by the sudden need to self-isolate from the spiky little planets of the new COVID 19.
Please join us on 30 April 2020 at 6pm as instead we livestream our YouTube Premiere!
To be part of our Watch Party, including introductory presentations by the filmmakers and a live Q & A hosted by Chris Speed, register on Eventbrite.
If you just want to watch the film, it will premiere on YouTube at 6.30 (no need to register).
CLOSES AND OPENS was produced, written and narrated by Liz McFall and AWED for the Edinburgh Futures Institute.
