Monster’s Walk in Ten Chapters is an outcome of a residence that Irineu Destourelles undertook with Deveron Projects in Huntly where he immersed himself in the work of Huntly-born writer, and pioneer of fantasy literature, George MacDonald. Throughout the film a dark monster enters, explores and abruptly leaves a town that he seems simultaneously unfamiliar and familiar with. As the Monster’s trajectory through different urban and green spaces and states of mind unfolds, an off-screen narrator tells a disjointed tale of broken love between beings from a different reality that ultimately reveals the Monster’s plight. Drawing on Irineu’s engagement with issues of creolity, blackness and diaspora, the film dwells on loss as an intrinsic state of being whilst referencing structural film and representation of otherness in popular culture.
We are looking forward to sharing this film with you, with an all-day screening on the 21st January 2023. The film will be screening constantly on loop in the Huntly Brander Library meeting room.
