Rosalind Nashashibi’s new two part film (Part One: Where there is a joyous mood, there a comrade will appear to share a glass of wine, and Part Two: The moon nearly at the full. The team horse goes astray.) is inspired by a short story by the sci-fi writer Ursula K. Le Guin, which follows a multi-generational group testing a new form of space travel using non-linear time.
Nashashibi consulted the I Ching, an ancient Chinese divination manual, at the start of shooting and has used its response to shape the making of the film, and to title both parts.
Featuring the artist, her children, as well as close friends, the film reflects on how a group’s sense of commonality is built and then fractured when their movement is non-sequential and beyond their understanding. Through sci-fi, Nashashibi allows non-nuclear family to blend into the community and working life, and explores the potential of love outside of linear time.Book tickets
