In the long now is a new touring programme curated by aemi that places work by Irish contemporary film artists in conversation with three titles by international practitioners, all of whom are innovating new approaches to the moving image as an artform.
Featuring work by Alee Peoples, Eavan Aiken, Jeamin Cha, Sandy Kennedy, Sylvia Schedelbauer and Patrick Hough, In the long now explores ideas relating to love, liveness, mortality and the act or technological process of seeing beyond the limits set by our physical abilities.
Following on from its world premiere at Cork International Film Festival 2021, In the long now has travelled to a number of venues across Ireland and beyond in 2022.
aemi is an Irish Arts Council-funded organisation that supports and exhibits moving image work by artists and experimental filmmakers
