Join us for the screening of Denim Sky by our exhibiting artist Rosalind Nashashibi.

Made between 2018-2022 across different time scales and locations across the world. Denim Sky is a feature film in three parts. Together the trilogy is a playful exploration of non-nuclear family and community structures, the theoretical effects of non-linear time travel on human relationships, and how this could aid or problematise communication.

The narrative is based on a fiction about a spaceship crew brought together in order to develop a crew mentality, so that they can be used to test a new form of space travel that uses non-linear time. Throughout, the light humour and fraternal mood of the group are disrupted by unsettling and unexpected events.

The duration of the film is 67 minutes and will be followed by a conversation with the artist and Louise Ashcroft as well as an audience Q&A.
