Invisible City at The Book Club

by Abi Weaver

Thinking and Drinking: Conversations in Film
Invisible City – A Participatory Screening

Welcome to a night of film, discussion and thinking about the city. LIDF invites you to contribute and co-create as we formulate new and exciting ways to continue our Invisible City project begun at last year’s Festival.

Based around three films, ‘open space’ discussions, and psycho-geographical mapping of our city, this night promises to be a thought provoking and absorbing preamble to LIDF’s Invisible City 2011. Tonight we want to hear about your unique experiences of the Invisible City, a mysterious phenomenon with many possible interpretations and meanings: places, ideas, encounters, gestures, nooks, crannies, moments in time and space… all part of our individual experiences of London.

The aim of the event is to devise film, narrative, and participatory means of exploring the Invisible City, so that these ideas can be illuminated, used, discovered and shared by others.

This process of discovery and mapping will take place between films and wine served downstairs at The Book Club.

Wednesday 16th February
Time: 7pm –  8.30pm
Door: £7 including complimentary glass of wine
100 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH – 020 7684 8618
