Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen film screening and Q&A
Stills is delighted to welcome Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen to Edinburgh for a screening of the film, ‘Today I’m With You’ (Amber, 2010). Arising out of Konttinen’s project, ‘Byker Revisited’ (2005), the film follows her return to Byker, now the Byker Wall Estate, to record the lives of a community that she first began to document in 1969. The film will be introduced by Konttinen and will be followed by a Q&A with Ben Harman, Director of Stills.
This event has been organised to coincide with the exhibition, Women Photographers from The AmberSide Collection, featuring works by Diane Arbus, Martine Franck, Graciela Iturbide, Izabela Jedrzejczyk, Laura Junka-Aikio, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, Susan Meiselas, Tish Murtha and Grace Robertson.
