jeff mills film ‘man from tomorrow’ to be screened at ica
The Man From Tomorrow is a collaboration between Detroit techno wizard Jeff Mills and French filmmaker Jacqueline Caux, intended as less of a traditional portrait of Mills music and life, more a playfully dream-like journey through his oeuvre, ideas and imagination.
Caux focuses on a non-narrative approach, with only the second part of the film using voice-overs to complement the hypnotic and enthralling combination of her unconventional visual aesthetic and Mills hypnotic sounds.
According to Caux, this concept reflects her desire to ‘above all give free reign to the viewers subjective impressions, and physical sensations leaving it up to their imagination and personal projections to create meaning’.
The screening takes place at the ICA on 19 April and is followed by a Q&A with Jacqueline Caux and Jeff Mills.
