La Tijera

Wardrop, Joanne and Ounanian, Steven. 2016-Present La Tijera. [Project] (Forthcoming)

Item Type:

Creators: Wardrop, Joanne and Ounanian, Steven
Abstract or Description:

The film was devised as a vehicle to embrace and confront an emerging era of precarious labour and its effect on our mental health, where the computer screen has supplanted the silver screen’s century of power over our dreams and ideals. Working with experts in precarious labour (actors in LA), we developed experimental approaches to scriptwriting and filmmaking, which have culminated in a feature length narrative film. We are both interested in alternative and emerging methods of producing time-based media, investigating and subverting algorithm generated plots (Netflix, Blockbuster Films, etc.), in order to create non-hierarchical and non-linear systems of narrative building. The outcome is both a feature length film and a lecture around the methodologies and approaches we used.
