28 October 2022 / / Galleri Format, Malmö, Sweden
Film installation at Galleri Format between 28th October - 6th November + Q&A with Patrick Hough (Director of The Black River of Herself) and aemi Co-Director Daniel Fitzpatrick

The international leg of aemi’s 2022 Tour continues to Galleri Format in Sweden, plus an in-person Q&A with programme artist Patrick Hough and aemi Co-Director Daniel Fitzpatrick

‘In the long now’ is aemi’s 2022 curated touring programme that places work by Irish contemporary film artists in conversation with three titles by international practitioners, all of whom are innovating new approaches to the moving image as an artform.

Featuring work by Alee Peoples, Eavan Aiken, Jeamin Cha, Sandy Kennedy, Sylvia Schedelbauer and Patrick Hough, ‘In the long now explores ideas relating to love, liveness, mortality, and the act or technological process of seeing beyond the limits set by our physical abilities.

The programme received its world premiere at Cork International Film Festival in 2021, and is now travelling to a number of venues across Ireland and internationally in 2022. More info on the ‘In the long now’ tour

‘In the long now’ will be presented at Galleri Format between 28th October and 6th November 2022, see specific screening and event times below:

Text by Gwen Burlington
‘In the long now’ is accompanied by a new text by Irish critic Gwen Burlington which looks closely at what each film means in relation to life and death cycles – from more human-centric experiences to the impacts of climate change on the planet across space and time.
