Workshop: On Cinematic Language with Adele Tulli and Shengze Zhu
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Present.Perfect. (Wan Mei Xian Zai Shi), Dir. Shengze Zhu, 2019, USA / Hong Kong, 124 min., Mandarin with English subtitles

Two filmmakers featured in this year’s FRAMES of REPRESENTATION, Adele Tulli (Normal) and Shengze Zhu (Present.Perfect. (Wan Mei Xian Zai Shi)) discuss their approaches to filmmaking beyond the confines of dominant cinema in a conversation hosted by film programmer, director and co-founder of Kitchen Sink Collective Ludovica Fales. Though the contexts (both formal and cultural) in which they work are starkly divergent, Tulli and Zhu both question the place of cinematic language in contemporary life, examining the ways in which it compels us to perform, as well as how it incites us to consume.

Join us for the UK premieres of Adele Tulli’s Normal and Shengze Zhu’s Present.Perfect.
FoR is presented in partnership with CHASE (Consortium for the Arts and Humanities South-East England).
