‘Blackholes Are Gathering’ is an experimental documentary by Illojgali aka Dan Harris that follows Wellington artists The All Seeing Hand, E N T, Alphabethead and Kaishandao on their tour through China in 2017.
Following it’s recent premiere in Aotearoa, Kiwese is excited to announce a series of nine special screenings in Mainland China!
Read more about the film here.
These screenings are all free entry events and graciously supported by the venues, many of which we performed at during the 2017 tour.
Kiwese will be speaking a bit about the tour before the screening in Chengdu, while the other screenings will be hosted by the venues themselves.
Big shout out to the venues for putting these screenings as free public events, as showing independent films in Mainland China can often be a difficult undertaking, especially when there are tickets involved.
The landscape in China has changed drastically since the making of this film, within the independent music scene and beyond. We hope you can enjoy this view into a capsule of the past with a sense of curiosity and hope for the future.
