Festival Opening: Dark Cinema with Chris Watson

To celebrate the opening of the 16th Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, BAFTA-winning sound recordist Chris Watson reimagined the recordings made for Luke Fowler’s film Enceindre which premiered in Berwick in 2018. Watson mixed new Berwick-based recordings—taken in early September by sound artist Martin Parker in Berwick at night.

BFMAF’s Director Peter Taylor joined Chris in conversation to introduce the piece and welcome everyone to the inaugural online edition.

This event can be watched here and on our twitch channel.
