Make it New John,
2009,  Beta and 16mm transferred to video

Partner institutions MoCAB and Filmforum of Students Cultural Centre, Belgrade Bernadette presents an unravelling, open-ended story of the female Irish dissident and political activist, Bernadette Devlin. Duncan Campbell is interested in fusing documentary and fiction in order to assess both the subject matter and the mode of communicating it.

Make it New John tells the story of the DeLorean car, its creator John DeLorean and the workers of the Belfastbased car plant that built it. The film deftly contrasts the DeLorean dream with its spectacular downfall during a critical period in Northern Ireland’s history, and the canonisation of the car – the DMC12 – as a symbol of the American myth of mobility. In Make it New John Campbell fuses a documentary aesthetic with fictive moments, using existing archive news and documentary footage from the 1980s as well as new 16mm footage which imagines conversations between DeLorean factory workers. Campbell questions the documentary genre and reflects here on broader existential themes and narrative drives.

Duncan Campbell (IE) (born in1972 in Dublin) lives and works in Glasgow. He completed a BA at the of Ulster, Belfast, in 1996 and an MFA at The Glasgow School of Art in 1998. His films are primarily concerned with themes relating to the past and history.

In particular, Campbell leverages these mediums in an effort to explore how social, political, and personal narratives are relayed and preserved over time. As such, he not only questions the degree to which documentary is fiction, but he also problematises the accepted authority and integrity of cultural records. Archival elements are therefore interwoven with Campbell’s various personal understandings and interpretations, as imagery of his own construction is mashed-up with found, official documentation and original footage. Such is the spirit of Campbell’s work: his smart, precisely crafted films convey engaging alternate stories and portraits.

Film programme is organized in the framework of the project “Invisibile violence”, a multi-disciplinary project co-produced by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade (MoCAB) and ARTIUM Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art.
