Esther Johnson's film Tune In screening in San Francisco gallery
Esther Johnson's short film Tune In has been selected for the San Francisco exhibition Light Field, which curates recent and historical moving image art on celluloid. The film will screen at The Lab for Light Field's 11 November programme.
Commissioned by Film London, Tune In is a portrait of the fascinating world of amateur radio operators, better known as HAMS. Dealing with the politics of space and social communication, the film blends documentary and abstract audio to reflect on the use of DIY radio equipment in an ever-changing modern world.
