A multidisciplinary arts event featuring film, photography, theatre performance and interactive media. Volker Gerling is a passionate creator and an intrepid traveller. Experience some of the precious moments he has captured come to life.
Since 2003 Volker has walked some 4,000km on foot, inviting people to visit his travelling “thumb book cinema” exhibition and from time to time capturing the hidden magic of seemingly everyday encounters, transforming these into new photographic flipbooks.
In his show, Gerling moves through the flipbooks with his thumb underneath a video camera and projects the images onto a screen. In a series of enchanting moments with the people he has photographed he shares a gentle but profound reflection upon the transitory nature of the moment and the significance of interpersonal encounters.
After the screening Film Talks will host a Q&A session with Volker Gerling.
