MIRROR WITH A MEMORY (2019)

Documentary Film
16mm


Impermanence in motion. “Mirror With A Memory” is a filmic and photographic study of a disappearing England as we experience a transitional period in history, as seen through the eyes of the last non-digital generation.

Over the last three years I have travelled throughout the country documenting trades, traditions, cultures and ways of living that are under threat of discontinuation.

Shot exclusively on 16mm and 120mm Kodak film, the project will culminate in an exhibition with 
live score and a limited photobook.

Work in progress screened at The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.


Scored by Dean Jones and Kevan Hardman.
Type and Book Design by Jack Kimberley.

Funded by The Chalk Cliff Trust and Video Jam.

THA-AT’S RIGHT (2018)

Artist moving image
16mm


Created as a response to Edwin Denby’s 1959 review of Stravinsky’s final ballet ‘Agon’, Hill uses Denby’s review and its relentless metaphors, references and precise visual shocks as a script for a new work, taking the linguistic articulation of a dance and returning it to a choreographed state through film, live performance and sound. 

Director - Rowland Hill
Producer - Scout Stuart
Cinematographer - Paul Daly
Composer - Jack Sheen

Dancers - Svenja Bühl, Regina Laasmäe, Danielle Summers


MAM & DA (2019)

Artist Moving Image 
16mm


“Mam & Da” is a documentation of my mother coping with the death of my grandmother and my father nearing the end of his working life. 

The film is a study of the breadwinner and housewife relationship in a British context. Each subject poetically recites their memories and predicaments based on our passing conversations over the last several years.

Currently in production.
