A series of tender exchanges between life long friends Jeanette Iljon and Anne Bean. Born eleven days apart to Jewish families in Zambia in 1950, they both went on to become artists in the UK. THE LIGHT OF DAY carefully recomposes Iljon’s experimental, feminist and social activist film works made in the 1970s/80s. It combines these with an almost lost interview, shot by Anne Bean in 2000 and new performance material that was made with Alex Eisenberg in 2019 following Iljon’s diagnosis with dementia

To allow for social distancing the film will be shown 3 times from 3pm, followed by a discussion between Anne Bean and Alex Eisenberg at 4pm. The film is 19 minutes long and will be shown with captions.

Anne Bean has worked worldwide across the visual arts, performance, sound and video for the last fifty years. She is currently commissioned to work on a project with Zambian artists.

Alex Eisenberg is an artist and filmmaker working with performance and video. He has collaborated with Anne Bean on video projects since 2017.

Jeanette Iljon studied film at Royal College of Art. She made experimental films in the 1970s and worked with London Film-Makers’ Co-op, going on to explore social activist and feminist issues including a film about Sylvia Pankhurst with Channel 4 in the 1980’s.

THE LIGHT OF DAY + Discussion with Anne Bean & Alex Eisenberg is booking now at LUX (03 OCT 15:00+).
