Everyday at 10, 12, 2.30, 4 & 7
Big Screen Liverpool, Clayton Square, L1 1QR


37Seconds presents its twelfth programme of contemporary moving image exclusively curated for The Big Screen Liverpool. Scheduled to coincide with Liverpool’s Mathew Street Music Festival (25 – 28 August) this programme features two very different creative responses to the theme of music.

Prior to their new work Silent Sound featuring in next months Liverpool Biennial, 37Seconds will be screening two video works by up and coming, London-based artists’ Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard. Shot in Montreal and London respectively, Everybody else is wrong 2004 and Anyone else isn’t you 2005 are unscripted portraits of two groups of young people, talking intimately to the camera about love, loss, mix tapes and the personal impact of music as a soundtrack to their lives. Iain and Jane’s dynamic pace of editing jumps back and forth between the subjects, mixing meaning and blurring narratives, shifting seamlessly from moments of brash self-confidence to crushing uneasiness. www.iainandjane.com

In sharp contrast, The Designers Republic’s music video for Funkstörung’s single Grammy Winners mixes visually stunning animation and advertising – style typography; cleverly undermining the video’s stand alone artistic value with constant references to its status as a consumer product. www.thedesignersrepublic.com
