An Outstanding - and Still Crazy - Task: Transforming Ourselves into Gods
Language is a Virus
Disobedient Films was established in 2014 by artist-filmmakers Katharine Round and Leah Borromeo to disrupt traditional linear documentary and extract new angles and emotions around factual narratives. Their projects are disobedient in form and content – aiming to create an active form of storytelling which brings the viewer into the experience. Projects include London Recruits for the V&A (in collaboration with Jamie Perera and Gilbert Sinnott), Space Not Spikes, as well as cross-genre works for Amnesty, Platform London, Al Jazeera, and feature documentaries in co-production with Dartmouth Films and others.
Jamie Perera is a composer and sonic artist. Finding space between sound, music, data and practical applications, his work explores imbalance, resistance and mutations, and works as acts of meditation. Examples of this approach include performing a twelve minute improvisational duet on guitar with pianist Lubomyr Melnyk in the Royal Albert Hall and creating a soundtrack out of archive gun sounds from the Imperial War Museum for an Amnesty International campaign on arms trade. Perera’s work has been released worldwide as L.O. Freq alongside Cinematic Orchestra, Mark Ronson and Matthew Herbert.
