stuart A. staples – A new real Taken from the album ‘Arrhythmia' ‘I made the first part of this film on the way to City airport, London on 13th November 2015. We were on our way to Skibbereen in County Cork to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends. Later that night would be the Paris attacks and the madness of tracking down loved ones. But for this moment, a glass roofed taxi in the rain on my way to a place and people I love was a special moment. The song arrived on Christmas day 2016, but I felt the connection straight away.’ Stuart also announces a solo concert at ‘Chapelle de la Trinité, Lyon.

Stuart at The Viennale. On my way to Vienna. Somehow found myself with 3 films to represent at this years Viennale.

Displaced. A documentary film by Volkan Uce. Music by David Boulter. The title of this film is taken from Charles Bukowski’s eponymous poem. One of its lines is: “I am not like other people. Other people are like other people.” The young people in Volkan Üce’s “Displaced” know the experience of being different and without a home Bukowski talks about. Sinan, Şule, Orhan and Bahar spent their childhood and youth in Belgium and the Netherlands before they moved (back) to Istanbul, their grandparents’ home country. But even in the city they love so much they are strangers at first. Over a period of four years – from 2011 to 2015 – Üce follows the Belgian-Turkish or Dutch-Turkish migrants on their quest for identity, jobs and personal happiness. In the face of the political upheavals in Turkey, their European socialisation takes on a different significance. While Orhan sides with Erdoğan, taking part in the Gezi protests becomes a meaningful experience and a way to find his place in society for Sinan: “Gezi is ours. Istanbul is ours. The lightbulb has bursted”, the writing on the wall reads. More info, trailer & screenings here: https://films2017.dok-leipzig.de/en/film/?ID=17037&title=Displaced

Minute bodies: The intimate world of F. Percy Smith Official selection at London Film Festival. Premiere at 9pm, 11th October 2016, NFT 1, plus Q&A with Stuart and co-editor David Reeve. Finally, after three years in the making, Minute Bodies is ready for others to see and hear. Directed by Stuart and co-edited with David Reeve, it has a musical score by tindersticks with Thomas Belhom and Christine Ott. The music also benefits from great cameo performances from David Coulter (musical saw & nose flute) and Julian Siegel (saxophone) The LFF describes the film… ‘This meditative, immersive film is a tribute to the astonishing work and achievements of naturalist, inventor and pioneering filmmaker F. Percy Smith. Smith worked in the early years of the 20th century, developing various cinematographic and micro-photographic techniques to capture nature’s secrets in action. Minute Bodies is an interpretative edit that combines Smith’s original footage with a new contemporary score to create a hypnotic, alien yet familiar dreamscape that connects us to the sense of wonder Smith must have felt as he peered through his own lenses and seen these micro-worlds for the first time.’ tickets for the premiere are available here from BFI https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/lff/Online/default.asp?BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::permalink=minutebodiestheintimateworldoffpercysmith&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::context_id= In 2017 there will be a small selection of special live cine-events, the first to be announced is Le Lieu Unique in Nantes on Saturday the 11th, and Sunday the 12th of March.
