Cinemash Up – Shanghai’s number one spot for feasting your eyes – is presenting a special guest performance this weekend:  celebrated Australian experimental film maker Dirk de Bruyn will be showing his latest feature length film Telescope on September 2nd. Telescope is a unique combination of Super 8 film and digital video shots compiled over a period of 20 years. The film explores themes of identity, culture and nostalgia through animation, mixed media, archival footage and features an original soundtrack. Presenting the emptied suburban backyard as an emblem of White Australia and the continued invisibility of Australia’s indigenous population, this film diverges from the psychedelic expanded cinema performance we saw from de Bruyn last year, showing a more introspective side to his work. An internationally acclaimed experimental film maker, Dirk de Bruyn has been making experimental, documentary and animation films and videos for over 30 years and is considered one of the pioneers of expanded cinema and experimental film. This will be the China premiere of Telescope – it’ll be a busy night, so get there early to park your bum and pick up some popcorn. Screening starts at 7pm, Sunday 2nd September, Dada Bar Shanghai. Stills from Telescope show the diverse range of styles used:
