Join the Barbican Young Programmers, Poets and Visual Artists to celebrate this year's Chronic Youth Film Festival with an evening of archive film, live poetry and music
The Barbican Young Programmers who curate Chronic Youth Film Festival have invited the Barbican Young Poets and Young Visual Artists to collaborate on an event that celebrates their various art forms in a single space.
The Young Poets have developed pieces responding to the four archive films screened during Into The Archive earlier in the day, mediating on identity, inter-nationality and the self. Followed by a three-screen installation by Barbican Young Visual Artist Shamica Ruddock, which uses archive footage and a soundscape (also produced by Ruddock) to explore youth culture.
The Saturday of Chronic Youth Film Festival finishes with music mixed by Young Programmers very own Meenu Sureshlal, inviting you to reflect the day's films, and on the multitude of representations of youth through history, art and music.
