Glasgow Short Film Festival
Artist Talk: Benjamin de Burca
Sat 25 March 2023
Over the last decade Bárbara Wagner (Brazil) and Benjamin de Burca (Ireland/Germany) have produced a series of hybrid musicals about diverse cultural communities in Brazil, Germany, Ireland, France and Canada. Equally at ease working with LGBTQ+ dancers in Recife or evangelical Christians in rural Brazil, with romantic pop artists in Germany or poets and rappers in Toronto, they collaborate closely with their subjects in developing works that straddle fiction and documentary to explore the social and historical roots of each subculture portrayed.
Benjamin de Burca returns to Glasgow for the first time since graduating from Glasgow School of Art to present two programmes of the duo’s work. Join him for an in depth examination of their practice, in conversation with Glasgow-based writer and curator Marcus Jack.
This is a free event.
