Mark Street has been making films, videos and installations for 30 years. Inspired by the tradition of street photography, his work has moved from tactile, abstract explorations of 16mm film, to essays on the urban experience, to improvised feature length narratives.
DCTV present this collection of Mark Street’s documentary and experimental films, including the World Premiere of his latest, Lost Notes From Home, all with live improvised score by The Lost Orchestra.
