For the film night in Leipzig, PS² has selected films and videos by artists we have worked with in the last years. Seamus Harahan, Lyndsay Donly, Phil Hession and Christopher Whiteside & Madeline Graham are Northern Irish artists, aged between their early 20’-40’. The work spans from non-narrative artist- film (Seamus Harahan) to a fully scripted DIY friendship film production (Whiteside &Graham). Of course, this selection does not represent Northern Irish artist film making, it is our/ PS² personal view, quirky and experimental. Still, we hope that the films will give an insight into Northern Irish reality, its politics and people- with all their hopes and nightmares.
