9 Futures: Sounds Fragmenting (2015, 64 mins)
Dir. Nathaniel Budzinski & Theo Cook
In 9 Futures: Sound Fragmenting the director and The Wire journalist Nathaniel Budzinski travels to some of Europe's most innovative sound festivals and investigates these gatherings as epicentres of social-utopian experiments. Norwegian premiere.
Screenings at 12:00 and 17:00.
Virtuoso Listening (2013, 65 mins)
Dir. Stéphane Jourdain & Anaïs Prosaïc
An intimate portrait of the work of French composer Eliane Radigue. Her work has roots in Europe's post-war avant garde, and she has been linked with the pioneers of American minimalism such as La Monte Young and Steve Reich, but her monumental meditative compositions have taken a singular path, transporting the listener into new realms of sound. Norwegian premiere.
Screenings at 13:30 and 18:30.
Hustlers Convention (2015, 93 mins)
Dir. Mike Todd
A feature documentary on the forgotten roots of rap centring around the life and times of Jalal Mansur Nuriddin of The Last Poets and the forgotten influence of his seminal record Hustlers Convention. Along the way, it reveals the deep roots rap music has in the oral tradition of the Jail Toast. Norwegian premiere.
Screenings at 15:00 and 20:00.
