Richard Billingham Ray (2015, 33 mins)
Exhibition launch 23/10/15, 6.00-8.00pm
Ray examines a static situation. It is a biographical film, derived from Richard Billingham’s experience of living with his father, Ray, at a critical time in Ray’s life. The film attempts to get beyond memory, to the thoughts and emotions that underpin memory.
