New film installations to launch in Honiton and Exmouth

This January, Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) presents two immersive film installations by international artist Mikhail Karikis.

Children of Unquiet, 2014 and SeaWomen, 2012 share the experience of two very different communities: fisherwomen from the 'haenyeo' community on Jeju island, Korea, and children brought up by the geothermal powerplant in Devil’s Valley, Tuscany.



Samson and Delilah (15)

Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth, Drake Circus, PL4 8AA
Event Date: 
Monday, November 1, 2021 - 19:00 to 20:45

Samson and Delilah is the film that put director Warwick Thornton on the map. Harrowing and deeply affecting, Thornton doesn’t hold back in laying bare the brutal realities of the cultural divide still evident in Australia, as we watch the eponymous Aboriginal couple trying to navigate a harsh and unforgiving world. One of the most remarkable Australian films of this century.

Dir. Warwick Thornton, Australia, 2009, 97 minutes.
