Atmosphere | A Zed & Two Noughts

A Zed & Two Noughts

Thursday 28th September 2017, 7:30 for 8pm. £10
Alt-w LAB, City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh

Peter Greenaway's visually stunning 1985 film was the first with his "most important collaborator" cinematographer Sacha Vierny. A story of twin zoologists Oswald and Oliver Deuce who, after losing their wives in a freak car collision with a swan outside the zoo where they work, develop a curious attachment to the car's driver Alba, who survived.

Developed in collaboration with DCN Design Fellow Susana Cámara Leret, this is our first Atmosphere event in the Alt-w LAB and our first as part of Scalarama. Punctuated by the dulcet tones of Sir David Attenborough and the influence of Johannes Vermeer, the film is a rumination on life, love and sex and the inevitability of birth, death and decay.
