Simon Pummell in Focus. Shadow Drawings, Trick Films and Science Fictions

The British filmmaker Simon Pummell recently donated his short films to EYE. Pummell is a lecturer at the Piet Zwart Institute who became internationally known for his surrealistic animated films. Patricia Pisters will interview Pummell and screen several of his short films, followed by the screening of his latest feature film Identicals.

Pisters, Professor of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam, will be interviewing Pummell about his work and the sources that inspired him. The British filmmaker completed a long feature film, Identicals, this summer. In this ‘romantic SF thriller’ a young man falls into the hands of a conglomerate that  provides people with a brand-new life in a rather unorthodox way.

Pummell recently donated his short films to EYE Film Museum to be preserved and screened. His surrealistic animations have a dark edge and are reminiscent of the Quay Brothers’ work. The films – including Secret Joy of Fallen Angels (1991), Ray Gun Fun (1994) and Blinded by Light (2004) – date from 1986 to 2004 and were previously screened at various festivals (IFFR, Venice) and at the BFI.

The filmmaker, who was born in Norwich in 1959, combines animation with other cinematographic forms such as documentary, video art, transmedia and fiction. Pummell’s films have received numerous awards, including a prestigious BAFTA award for his found footage production Bodysong (2003).

Pummell – who has recently become a Dutch citizen – is Director of the Lens-Based Media Design & Communication department at the Rotterdam Willem de Kooning Academy (Piet Zwart Institute).
