Undead Sun (2014) explores perspectives around visibility, technology and the reconstruction of narratives. It refers to the art of surveillance and aerial warfare, and its counter measures of concealment and camouflage which emerged and flourished during the war thanks to technological advances. In order to bring these aspects to life the film will be shown in a specially constructed architectural setting in which the viewer’s own movement and line of sight will be restricted.
Sequences of the film are based on the artists’ extensive research of the IWM’s archives and offer a glimpse of human-scale dramas, as well as the darker side of society at the time. Undead Sun is a unique and thought-provoking perspective on a tragic war.
