EVERYBODY SAYS IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD
screening of 'Everybody Says It's All In Your Head' by Clare Bottomley and Johnny Hourigan.
Johnny will introduce the film and a conversation between Clare and writer David Lillington will follow the screening.
I met Johnny when I took a job at a youth club in South London. I was his film tutor. He is now a young man aged 17 on the verge of adulthood facing the knowledge his autism will always make him different from other people.
Eschewing from the traditional approach in documenting the Other, I attempted to construct a complete inclusive and collaborative process in which the subject is included in all aspects of production and have full control on the filming, but also editing process. From the outset, Johnny has been involved in all the stages that make such a production come together from choosing a camera to designing the conditions of the film display in an exhibition context.
We have created a film that shifts the power within the processes of film making, placing the camera in the hands of the subject and creating a gaze that looks back at the audience.’
'Everybody Says It's All In Your Head' received the Deutsche Bank award for its production in 2013. more information here.
