Fourth Wall at Stuttgarter Filmwinter

Our Hallwalls commissioned movie Fourth Wall is in the 35. Stuttgarter Filmwinter International Short Films Competition.

Fourth Wall
United Kingdom 2020, 15:11 Min.
Regie: Vicki Bennett

#Fourth Wall# is a new site specific wide screen movie and reflects upon the illusion of separateness. The title addresses the experience of illusory duality constructed by the mind, which is replicated through the lens of the camera, the stage, and the surface of the page, movie or computer screen. Through the viewing, cutting and editing of hundreds of pre-existing movies, Vicki searches for multiple and parallel narratives and collages these together to create a flowing stream of consciousness, attempting to breakdown this wall and reveal what she perceives as a greater reality and oneness beyond relativity.

Radio Art Zone – New 22 Hour Radio Piece

On air from 18th June — 25th September 2022

People Like Us is currently making a brand new 22 HOUR radio piece for Radio Art Zone, a radio art project by Radio ARA and Mobile Radio for the European Capital of Culture Esch2022

People Like Us – 108
In Buddhism, according to Bhante Gunaratana this number is reached by multiplying the senses smell, touch, taste, hearing, sight, and consciousness by whether they are painful, pleasant or neutral, and then again by whether these are internally generated or externally occurring, and yet again by past, present and future, finally we get 108 feelings. 6 × 3 × 2 × 3 = 108. 

Imagine a radio that sounds different every day…
Radio Art Zone is a 100-day radio art station for Esch2022, which will be broadcast in the south of Luxembourg by Radio ARA on 87.8 FM. It will also be live-streamed for a
worldwide audience and transmitted by a network of international partners.
