Screening Sound: The Radio Atlas Adaptations
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Approx. 75 mins. A selection of radio documentaries, including Ladies of the Manor (2011, 53 mins). Sometimes answering one question accomplishes much more than that, and opens new avenues for creativity and discovery. Radio Atlas, an Internet hub which originated in the United Kingdom, ingeniously provides screen-based English subtitles for foreign-language audio documentaries, making works of sound art suddenly accessible to wider audiences. They offer a practical solution that engenders an exciting side effect: a new and unique form of cinema. Radio Atlas’s Eleanor McDowall presents a selection of absorbing audio works from around the world, all accompanied by visually inventive titles to create a theatrical experience unlike any other.
