As well as scores of bands playing over the Supersonic weekend, there will be many filmic delights to choose from. This year Film Ficcones return with Pram to Supersonic. Pram, Birmingham’s own, will provide a sinister cinematic soundtrack to Film Ficciones 16mm projections for a special performance.
Eagle and Feather will present Kipple, cleverly edited footage of detritus of modern living amassed through visits to charity shops and jumble sales. Kipple is a term used by Philip K Dick in his book ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ to refer to ‘unwanted or useless junk that tends to reproduce itself’. Eagle and Feather have applied this to their video mashups.
There will be a programme of label shorts from Secretly Canadian and Jagjaguwar including Black Mountain, Phosphorescent and Parts & Labor. Screenings will also include 65 Days of Static ‘Road Movie’, a documentary of a US tour featuring interviews, live performances and footage from dates with the Cure.
