This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Ben Russell is a Chicago-based experimental filmmaker whose work engages with the very essence of cinema; drawing on the history of film, scrutinising the act of looking and playfully considering the conventions of the camera. The seven 16mm films in Russell's Trypps series, made between 2005 and 2010, each take a different approach to what Russell refers to as 'Psychedelic Ethnography'. Referencing both Jean Rouch and Richard Pryor, the series explores naturally-derived psychedelia, from the repetitive flashing signs of contemporary cityscapes, to the manipulation of found footage, to the trance-like intensity of a Lightning Bolt gig.(Programme contains strobing effects.) We are delighted to welcome Ben Russell to introduce the screening. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Short Film Festival.
