ContainR : Solarpowered Mobile Cinema
My friends are doing this project. They've curated a programme of sports art films and are screening them in a custom built solar powered mobile cinema made from reconstituted shipping containers. It will be located at the main library in Vancouver starting February 20. Go and see, I am going on Thursday.
Think of it as green cinema meets performance films. Recycled shipping containers are reconfigured to house free screenings of Canadian and international dance, sport and performance films that celebrate physicality in art and sport.
Presented by Springboard in partnership with the Vancouver 2009 Cultural Olympiad, containR is a street installation at the nexus of video, public art and urban design. Sited on the northeast corner of Vancouver’s Library Square, containR sits at the cross roads of mountain and urban culture; art and sport cinema, embracing public art and sustainable design.
