A Hard Day’s Night

A4 Space

08 Jun 201602 Sep 2016

Alserkal Avenue and Cinema Akil present ‘A Hard Day’s Night‘, a summer-long weekly film programme.

“Man, unlike any other thing organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, and emerges ahead of his accomplishments” – John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

Take shelter from the summer heat and join Alserkal Avenue and Cinema Akil for our fourth collaborative programme and second summer-long film series at A4 Space. Just as Where We Dwell (September 2015-March 2016) explored the notion of “home,” this selection of films is inspired by the overarching themes of art production, dissemination and discourse, which shape the global art world and will be explored by Alserkal Avenue Programming in its second year. As such, the films in A Hard Day’s Night will interrogate notions of the workforce, manufacturing processes and industry.

Over the course of three months, A Hard Day’s Night will showcase films from around the cinematic globe, stretching across myriad genres, lenses and movements. From a timeless classic set in a hyper-mechanised future in Fritz Lang’s Metropolis to a personal story of perilous grunt work in Aki Kaurusmäki’s The Match Factory Girl — the final installment in the Finnish director’s Proletariat Trilogy – the programme travels to factories, workshops and rigs in search of the living. Through these films, the programme will explore the meaning of labour, process, technology, industry, craft and rigour and their imprints on the human condition.

For the summer of 2016, Cinema Akil and Alserkal Avenue will transform the shared darkness of the A4 Space screening room into a space to process thoughts on the nuts and bolts of its industrial surroundings.
