Storyville

Atomic, Living in Dread and Promise

An impressionistic kaleidoscope of our nuclear times and the beauty of the atomic world.

A Storyville documentary: an impressionistic kaleidoscope of our nuclear times - protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling and Chernobyl - but also the beauty of the atomic world.

The bombing of Hiroshima showed the appalling destructive power of the atomic bomb. Mark Cousins's bold documentary looks at death in the atomic age, but life too. Using only archive film and a new musical score by the band Mogwai, the film shows us an impressionistic kaleidoscope of our nuclear times - protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling, Chernobyl and Fukishima - but also the sublime beauty of the atomic world, and how x-rays and MRI scans have improved human lives. The nuclear age has been a nightmare, but dreamlike too.

Make Me Up!

Rachel Maclean takes a satirical look at the contradictory pressures faced by women today.

Multimedia artist Rachel Maclean takes a satirical look at the contradictory pressures faced by women today.

A satirical look at the contradictory pressures faced by women today. It examines how television and social media can help us explore identity, at the same time encouraging women to conform to strict beauty ideals. Multimedia artist Rachel Maclean has created a world that is both seductive and dangerous, a place where surveillance, violence and submission are a normalised part of daily life.

Siri wakes to find herself trapped inside a brutalist candy-coloured dreamhouse. Despite the cutesy decor, the place is far from benign, and she and her fellow inmates are encouraged to compete for survival. Forced to go head to head in a series of demeaning tasks, Siri and Alexa start subverting the rules, soon revealing the sinister truth that underpins their world.
