Cinenova presents The Work We Share: a national public programme of newly digitised films from the Cinenova collection addressing representations of gender, race, sexuality, health and community. The films are captioned by Collective Text, and supported by response commissions from contemporary artists and writers.

Our three day programme hosts the newly digitised film, Loss of Heat by Noski Deville (UK, 1994, 20mins) and presents a new, live performance created in collaboration between Nicola Singh and Noski Deville inspired by the work.

Loss of Heat is an evocative portrayal of queer love that challenges preconceived notions on the ‘reality’ of living with the invisible disability of epilepsy. It is a poetic, immersive interpretation exploring the interplay of the emotional and the physical, across boundaries of sexuality, dependence and desire.

Alongside touring the films, Cinenova have invited partners to support the screening programme through a series of workshops that continue a commitment of feminist filmmaking as a tool and framework for community cohesion, consciousness-raising and anti-racist education. Eva Louisa Jonas will lead a workshop in response to Loss of Heat on Saturday 30 April. Full details of each event can be explored below.
