Rudiments consists of new photographic, moving image and performative works that collectively explore tensions between discipline and chance, precision and chaos, empathy and the involuntary pleasure of watching the pain of others.
Central to the project is a film work in which Broomberg & Chanarin have collaborated with a group of young army cadets at a military camp on the outskirts of Liverpool. Whether the scenes we observe are staged by the artists or simply a document of the camp’s routine practice remains unclear. The absurd and disturbing introduction of a Bouffon (Hannah Ringham) – a dark clown whose performance teeters on vulgarity – radically challenges the military codes and interrupts their carefully choreographed routines. Broomberg & Chanarin’s film explores the formative moments of childhood and early youth in the presence of authority, and is propelled by a dramatic improvised score devised for the drums by the American musician Kid Millions.

A slow burning, terrifically melancholy drama set in a remote mountain region of Colombia, Carlos Trivino's debut is an impressively weighty, sometimes overly grandiose meditation on the effects of violence on the nation. The events of The Silence Of The River play out against a backdrop of visual majesty, opening up haunted, fearful lives which have quietly ruined and then forgotten; the magnificent, uncaring natural backdrops to those lives sometimes threaten to distract the viewer from the human-scale effects of the violence. Nonetheless, this is ambitious, large-scale film making which deserves festival exposure at the least.
