Performance, Parkside Hall
This performance is Mike Figgis’ most recent interpretation of this seminal work he started in 2000. Figgis will be “playing” with the image and re-mixing the sound to create a new way to experience this story. Shot simultaneously on four cameras and presented in four frames, Time Code tracks the lives of a smitten lesbian lover as she obsesses over her partner’s dalliances and the tense goings-on of a Hollywood film production company. Time Code is, as one of its critics points out, one of the “first films shot in real time in one take, to be truly interactive, and to present four different concurrent stories filmed simultaneously”.
