Passenger Films – The Art of Skatingpassengerfilms.wordpress.com

Looking forward to taking part in the Passenger Films event this week. Here is what it’s all about.

“Please join us for the start of the new Passenger Films 2015 schedule. We start off with an evening of film and discussion featuring the acclaimed documentary, Beautiful Losers (2008) and other short skateboarding films.

“Drawing on the subversive and anti-establishment ethos of skateboarding, the film speaks to the ways in which alternative creative subcultures can become mainstream art; but also the conflicts, tensions and issues that can arise because of the perceived ‘institutionalisation’.

“There will be a post-screening discussion involving Prof. Iain Borden (Bartlett School, UCL), author of ‘Skateboarding in the City’, Marc Vallée, a documentary photographer whose work explores the tension between public and private space in the context of contemporary youth culture, Sabina Andron (Bartlett School, UCL) a photographer and street art researcher and Dr. Harriet Hawkins (Geography Department, Royal Holloway), author of ‘For Creative Geographies’. The panellists will use the film(s) as a starting point to discuss the broader issues of subversive creativity and its role in challenging, subverting or indeed formulating more mainstream views of art.

“The event kicks off at 7pm, Tuesday 20th of January, Jetlag Bar, 125 Cleveland Street, Fitzrovia, W1t 6QB (see map). Tickets are available for £5.00 on the door.”
