𝑆𝑡𝑟𝑎𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑟𝑠 𝑊𝑖𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑛 is edited by Therese Henningsen and SIC-participant Juliette Joffé and published by the independent publishing house Prototype. It explores the idea of documentary as encounter through essays, stories, and other responses by filmmakers, artists, and writers.
The texts engage with the risks of encounter, unsettling assumptions about the distinctions between host and guest, stranger and friend, self and other, documentarian and protagonist.
SoundImageCulture is happy to welcome you to an evening with participating artists and filmmakers Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Mary Jiménez Freeman-Morris, Therese Henningsen and Juliette Joffé.
They will present films and engage in a conversation on their work in relation to questions of representation and encounter.

Guided by a sentence from my childhood, I encounter three people in Paris: a collector of lost objects, a princess in Disneyland and a coffee seller. Next year we will leave is a reconciliation with my hometown through a dialogue with strangers. Through a mirroring effect, the first-person narrative echoes the stories of those filmed, questioning the possibilities of the documentary encounter.

‘You’ve got something I want, and I’ve got something you want,’ he said. Twins Trevor and Raymond have lived together in New Cross for fifty years. They opened up their home to me after I approached them on a bus and asked to film them.

The director’s 102-year-old father is afflicted with dementia. His memory loss raises questions about the nature of family lineage and identity. Who has she become for him? A Lynchian journey into illness where images unravel in their texture and words become visionary. ‘Truth is in the eyes of the beholder.’

Art Class is a filmed performance lecture playing on, and exploring, the perennial tension between the two key words in its title. It uses the tropes of scholarly presentation and personal confession alongside extracts from the artist’s work, guest interventions, martial arts and meditation exercises and evidentiary found material. The sequence tests the limits of access that working-class artists have to cultural production and to the relevant institutions circulating these outcomes. Alternately playful and provocative, serious and satirical, Art Class favors wit over weaponizing and reflection over rhetoric but does not pull its punches when it comes to the real obstructions to working class creative progress, or to the strategies necessary to overcome such outmoded hindrances.
