Redmond Entwistle's films strive to think recent history, its places and social issues through a radical documentary approach; replaying, rebuilding, reproducing materials into an abstract and archetypal reality. The works employ both documentary and fictive modes of film-making, investigating histories of social and aesthetic displacement. Essayistic in the most experimental sense of the word, the works are critical explorations of the relation between abstract cultural capital and historical, material site. His last film Walk-Through was the focus of solo exhibitions at Cubitt Gallery, Tramway Gallery and International Project Space in 2012.
His previous film Monuments premiered in Rotterdam Film Festival's Tigers Shorts Competition in 2010, and his medium length film and sound work Paterson - Lodz won Best International Film at Images Festival in 2008. In 2013, spotlights on his work were presented at Hors Pistes (Centre Pompidou) and BAFICI (Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival), and included in the survey of UK artists film Assembly at Tate Britain. An exhibition of his films will be presented at MIT List Visual Arts Center in January 2015.
