Meeting with a Judas Tree, dir. Duval Timothy, United Kingdom 2022, 32 min., no dialogue

The ICA presents two special screenings of Meeting with a Judas Tree, a short film created by multidisciplinary artist Duval Timothy. Conceived to accompany the album of the same name, the film intertwines music and images to build an immersive, multisensorial work.

“The film runs through the entirety of the album (32 minutes) pairing the music which is mixed in Dolby 7.1 surround sound, with mostly still images of plants and trees I have photographed over the past few years. These images document some of the experiences that inspired the music.

The film is an exploration of my personal relationship with the natural world and so features images shot largely in the UK and Sierra Leone where I live and have a family background. Through the combination of still images with music I hope to create space for contemplation and imagination. A homage to the natural world around us.”

Presenting ‘Meeting with a Judas Tree’ at the ICA is an opportunity to celebrate the release of the album and share an immersive collective experience.”
