Mikhail Karikis is brought a vintage mobile cinema to Grain Village to screen a series of films, including special footage filmed on Grain with local young people.
There was an introduction by the artist and drinks on Saturday 12th, 1 -4pm. The film screenings took place across the weekend in a rolling programme, and included footage filmed with young people from the project, artists’ film, and archive footage from the British Pathé collection.
The vintage mobile cinema was built by the British Government in the late 1960s to tour the country and promote modern production techniques. The Ministry of Technology built seven of these custom mobile cinema units. Films would be played within the cinema, with supporting displays shown in the trailer that accompanied the towing unit as they toured the nation’s factories.
