Q & A: Berberian Sound Studio
Following the screening of Berberian Sound Studio, artist Samuel Hasler will be in discussion with host Ben Ewart-Dean about his explorations of contemporary Giallo.
When a naïve and introverted sound engineer is hired to mix the latest film by horror maestro Santini, he spends his time surrounded by bloodcurdling screams and the sounds of hacked vegetables. He finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of sonic and personal mayhem. As much a celebration of predigital film-making and the giallo genre as it is a striking and unpredictable psychological horror.
This screening is part of a weekend of events in collaboration with Book Works, to mark the launch of Samuel Hasler's first published work O, A Prayer Book. Samuel Hasler will be in residence in the gallery from 18- 30 March, presenting his studio practice to the public. More information here.
