48 hours | 24 Hours of Spatial Politics

Edinburgh International Film Festival

Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Markus Miessen is an architect, spatial consultant and writer, and one of the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s guest curators.

He will transform Inspace into, as he puts it, an “informally discursive social space, a hub for antagonistic debate, nonconsensual formats of moving image display, and – ultimately – a platform for alternative formats of civility”.

He is the author of many books and articles, and the editor of ‘Did Someone Say Participate’ (the Independent: “one of the ten best architecture books of all time”).

Come on feel the noise.

Twenty of the best visually progressive music videos from the last year to hit you full in the senses. From Saam Farahmand’s body welding extravaganza for the Klaxon’s Twin Flames to the epic re-release for Spanish Sahara by the Foals directed by Sydneysider Dave Ma.

Watch out for the hilarious road parade murder spree that is Kill Your CoWorkers by Flying Lotus and when Scotland’s Grum (aka Graeme Shepherd) isn’t doing remixes for Goldfrapp and Lady Gaga, he’s producing super addictive 80’s-themed tracks. Spun Gold.

Atmosphere | 8 1/2

Otto e mezzo

Saturday 25th June 2011, 8.30 for 9pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Fellini's eighth and a half film as a director, stars Marcello Mastroianni as a famous Italian film director Guido Anselmi. Winning two Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Costume Design, it’s a ravishing beauty.

Guido is suffering from director’s block. Production has stalled on his new science fiction film. So in order to unravel his present and move forward, he starts to recall his past, and the women he’s loved and left. Universally and perennially acclaimed.


Atmosphere | The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Monday 20th June 2011, 8.30 for 9pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

For all you set-jetters out there, a treat filmed right here on our doorstep. It’s 1930s Edinburgh and Miss Jean Brodie cuts a dash through the Marcia Blaine School for Girls. She has the frocks, she has her tenure, and she has a tendency to romanticise Fascism in class.

The Brodie Set are the focus of her devotion and energy, her girls are the crème de la crème. But overlooking Greyfrairs Kirk and on the banks of the Forth at Cramond, there is a snake in the grass… and the trousers.


Atmosphere | The Eyes of Laura Mars

The Eyes of Laura Mars

Thursday 23rd June 2011, 8.30 for 9pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Through the lens of fashion photographer Laura Mars’ camera she captures the extreme beauty of stylised violence by and against women. It’s controversial, but it’s made her the hottest creative talent in New York.

She can stop Broadway traffic with her shoots, but when she suddenly starts having startling visions of murder and mayhem, nothing is what it seems. NYC is a “kind of eerie, lavish dreamland” according to a New York Times review, perfect for a scissor thriller romance.


Atmosphere | Funny Face

Funny Face

Sunday 19th June 2011, 8.30 for 9pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

America’s Next Top Model? Well in this particular musical cycle, she’s to be found working in a Greenwich Village bookstore thinking that the fashion industry “is chichi, and an unrealistic approach to self-impressions as well as economics”.

Throw in one all expenses paid trip to Paris, the chance of meeting her idol, a noted philosophy professor and Audrey Hepburn is soon dressed head to toe in Givenchy declaring “I don’t want to stop. I like it. Take the picture.”
