Northern Lights: The Films of Greg Pope

After winning award at LUFF 2012 for his memorable performance “Light Trap” — a sounds and lights sculpture, exploring the codes and mechanisms of cinema and movies — Greg Pope (from the cinema collective Loophole) is back this year to present nine short films, made between 1997 and 2016. There the “pope” of cinematic performances walks across the surface of the Moon and around the port of Rotterdam, he manipulates and intensifies his own performances, questioning the cinema with bizarre visual sequences, optical effects and a hunting gun, until the killing — literally — of his own film (“Shot Film”).
