Cities of Oblivion and Love Hotel City


FF1

CITIES OF OBLIVION

By Stephen Barber

It’s the immediate future, and an all-engulfing digital crash has impacted on the global megalopolises and their populations, transforming the nature of memory itself. Violence and hallucination, ocular and sexual mutation, and the aberrant power of the film image, now form the raw sensory materials by which the final traces of human bodies survive.

Among the disintegrating alleys and corporate plazas of an East Asian megalopolis, an amnesiac film-archivist and a silent bar-hostess make an obsessive alliance in order to reactivate – or destroy forever – the life of cities, with extreme consequences for their own memories and bodies.

NB: There were no photographs taken at this event – which is fitting as after a reading by Stephen Barber – there was a discussion on the role of memory in an over documented society.
