Cinema director exhibits new work

Rebecca E Marshall hosts a selection of 'Fever of the Light' events around Hastings.

Find out about Rebecca's latest project at a selection of events in and around Hastings taking place over the next few months.

'Fever of the Light' exhibition

The Blackshed Gallery, Unit 3B, Russel Farm, Redlands Lane, Robertsbridge, TN32 5NG: 17 February - 31 March 2018 Free!

'Fever of The Light’ is a letter to the future, addressed from a mother to her son in 2033 when he will turn 18, right at the moment that humanity will be preparing for the first manned mission to Mars. From the first months in the life of a child, to a 73-year-old woman born isolated in the heart of Siberia’s vast forest, to six astronaut-scientists simulating life on Mars, this triptych of stories unfolds thoughts about the perception of time and timelessness in a world that is changing rapidly through constant progress in technology. ‘Fever of The Light’ highlights all the small and great needs and desires that unite people and crosses the borders of time.

All are welcome to attend the exhibition launch on 17 February, 5-7pm at the blackShed Gallery.
