Stage 5, MArch


Once upon a time in Rye, its once powerful ‘Corporation’ again seek to reinvent themselves to regain local dominance, by combining their nostalgic retellings of town history with the glamour and charisma of classic Hollywood cinema. The ‘Analogue Demagogy’ narrates the creation of a new film-production studio sited over the last remaining section of ancient town wall. The project develops questions about the infallibility of perspective, power and propaganda in film and architecture.
