FILM PORTRAITS BY LUKE FOWLER

In the filmmaker’s presence

Luke Fowler is an artist, filmmaker and musician from Glasgow whose films experiment with the conventions of biographical and documentary cinema. This cross section of 16mm short films from the last 12 years consists of impressionistic portraits of various people, some of whom are directly present in the filmmaker’s personal life (his mother, his neighbors), while others are completely absent but nonetheless important to him (the disco music producer Patrick Cowley, or Paul Cézanne). Proceeding in a fragmented and elliptical manner, Fowler composes his portraits from the material traces (photographs, documents, sound recordings) left by these people in the places they inhabit and subtle studies of their surrounding environments. His work of careful listening and observation brings to the surface forgotten or marginalized histories from various fields, such as radical pedagogy, experimental music, social activism, and queer culture.

Since sound is at the heart of his artistic practice, as a conclusion to the screening Luke Fowler will present Warren Sonbert’s silent film Divided Loyalties (1978) accompanied by a sound composition created by Fowler in collaboration with Richard McMaster. We wish to thank the Estate of Warren Sonbert for their generous authorization.
