Conference Paper: The Folk Horror Landscape of 1970's Northern Ireland at Journeys Across Media 2020: Sharing Stories, University of Reading, 3rd April 2020




Talk & Screening: BARBED WIRE LOVE 4: THE GARDEN OF EDEN IS A CUL DE SAC, Sunday 22 March 2020 (13.30) CCA Cinema 

Simon Aeppli leads us on a wander through a tactile and reflective decade-long filmmaking practice that suggests artist John Smith’s maxim that “If you look hard enough all meanings can be found or produced close to home”. Employing personal and subjective forms of documentary, Simon’s filmmaking manifests itself through an effortless hybrid of photography, note taking and chance encounters. This screening and talk will give Simon’s perspective on filmmaking around place and memory that incorporates a particularly Northern Irish accent and voice.
