JOURNEY TO THE EAST (JTTE) - Scotland’s premiere performance art and contemporary culture festival which centres queer, PoC and East Asian artists and artforms - returns to Glasgow from 22-30 September!

In the JTTE screening programme - the work of Cassils is presented in "Inextinguishable Fire" which enacts a full-body burn on film and in front of a live audience. Using techniques borrowed from Hollywood stunts, Cassils experiences the very real human terror of being lit on fire. Using a Phantom camera that shoots at 1000 frames per second, the 14-second full body burn is extended to 14 minutes of slow motion flame. The title of the work references Harun Farocki’s eponymous 1969 film, which reflects on the impossibility of effectively representing the horror of napalm on film. Moving image works from among others - Thai auteur Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Festival Director Jian Yi, round out this fresh program of mesmerising films.
