Director: James Clayden
James Clayden's Ghost Paintings series, produced over the past 17 years, represents a bold and unique synthesis of film and video art. Carefully layered textures, colours and sounds become a sort of visual poetry that defies rational analysis, but that nevertheless invokes thought in the viewer.
MIFF presents the world premiere of two new additions to James Clayden's acclaimed Ghost Paintings series, and will be screening the series in its entirety. It will also be the first time that the previously existing works have been screened serially. Program: Ghost Paintings (1986), Ghost Paintings I (2003), Ghost Paintings II (2002), Ghost Paintings III (2003), Ghost Paintings VI (2003).
