Commissioned by South West Screen and Film London, the A Movie participating artists are:Daria Martin(USA), Jimmy Robert (France/Holland), Mark Leckey (UK), Mika Taanila (Finland), Imogen Stidworthy (UK) and Yang Fudong (China). The films were produced by LUX and Spacex.
A Movie was an initiative to show artists' film works in a traditional cinema context; an intervention into an increasingly commercialised and sanitised experience. Rather than assuming that all artists' films suit a cinema environment just because they use the same medium as feature films, A Movie commissioned works that consciously respond to, comment on, interrupt or reflect the cinematic context.
