Event description

Description

A screening of 22:22, a film by Charlotte Ginsborg, 30mins, 2017. The film will be followed a Q&A and in conversation between director Charlotte Ginsorg and the author and dramaturge Gabriel Gbadamosi.

22:22 paints a vivid portrait of Tom Sietas, a world record in Static Apnea, the ability to hold ones breath under water. The film combines underwater photography of a record attempt with a contemporary dance performed to a live piano score composed by Gabriel Prokofiev. As the tension of the record attempt mounts the story that links the two activities is revealed through the pianist’s live narration. The film interweaves documentary and fiction to reveal what drives Tom to push his body to such extraordinary physical extremes; For Tom to deny breath is to find life.

The film was commissioned and supported by Film London Artists' Moving Image Network, Arts Council England and The Elephant Trust.
