“Cohen likes to get at the essence of his subject without explaining his subject.” – Sarah Larson, The New Yorker
Independent filmmaker Jem Cohen returns to Doc Talks this year to present his most recent long-form work World Without End (No Reported Incidents), featured at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. An homage to the fragile beauty of everyday life, the film is a cinematic portrait of small-town Britain along the Thames Estuary. It is also about prize-winning curries, beaches and fog, punk music and the coded class politics of hats. At a time when the small routine pleasures of civil society can no longer be taken for granted in a world of extreme gentrification and global tension, Cohen’s camera finds the ephemeral details in which history resonates, often invisible to the naked eye.
Please join us for this Doc Talk presentation and post-screening Q and A with one of cinema’s foremost film essayists, and uncompromisingly independent artists.
