The workshop is supported by the Centre for Modern Studies and the MA in Film and Literature.

Both events will be preceded by a screening (time tbc) of Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi's film, The Flow of Blood and Life from the Pole to the Equator(1988). 

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 6 April 1988, on The Flow of Blood and Life from the Pole to the Equator: 'To watch From the Pole to the Equator is to feel that one has seen a ghost - many ghosts, human and animal, from places all over the globe.  The spectral quality of this documentary is overwhelming.  Two Italian film makers, Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi, have drawn upon turn-of-the-century film from regions that were then fabulously exotic - the Arctic, India, Africa, and less remote but equally striking settings in the Dolomites and the Caucasus - and assembled it at a sleepwalker pace, with changeable color tints and a humming electronic score.  The result offers haunting glimpses of a world in the process of being conquered.'
