Current History

Synopsis

Current History explores the present unique and transitional period of events in the lives of villagers of Beshencevo in central Russia.

Through re-enacting familiar and routine aspects of their lives, as well as vital and life changing dramas, both the Romani and Gadje population of the village will be given the power of the camera to explore a series of layered situations.

Project Background

One of the largest publicly funded award programmes for artists in the UK, the London Artists' Film and Video Awards (LAFVA) scheme offered awards of up to £20,000 for production of artists' moving image work.

From 2000 to 2008 the scheme supported London-based artists working in the context of contemporary moving image practice - producing work intended for exhibition in galleries, festivals, specialist venues and as site specific installations.
