What Remains: The Life and Work of Sally Mann

– dir Steven Cantor  Cert(TBC)

FRIDAY 29th SEPTEMBER 2023 at 7pm (doors 6.30pm)


Advance Tickets for the screening are priced at £6 (£8 on the day)

Our aim is to keep the tickets prices for the film screenings as low as we possibly can to open up the screening for more people… BUT… we do need to cover the cost of the film screening in the cinema, SO…  If you are in the position to help out a little more, please do consider making an extra donation to Oriel Colwyn at checkout.

As one of the world’s preeminent photographers, Sally Mann creates artwork that challenges viewers’ values and moral attitudes. Described by Time magazine as “America’s greatest photographer,” she first came to international prominence in 1992 with “Immediate Family,” a series of complex and enigmatic pictures of her own children. This work, and the controversy that followed it, was chronicled in Steven Cantor’s award-winning short film, Blood Ties.

WHAT REMAINS returns to follow the creation of Mann’s new seminal work: a photo series revolving around various aspects of death and decay. Never one to compromise, Sally Mann reflects on her own personal feelings toward death as she continues to examine the boundaries of contemporary photography. Shown at home on her family farm in Virginia, she is surrounded by her husband and now-grown children, and her willingness to reveal her artistic process as it unfolds allows the viewer to gain exclusive entrance to her world.

Spanning five years, WHAT REMAINS contains unbridled access to the many stages of Mann’s work, and is a rare glimpse of an eloquent and brilliant artist.

We gratefully acknowledge Ffilm Cymru Wales support for our regular Photo Film Club screenings.
