Tacita Dean at Tate Modern Turbine Hall

Tacita Dean is the latest artist to take up the challenge of filling Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Her response, entitled ‘FILM’, is a silent 35mm looped film projected onto a monolith standing 13 metres tall. This short documentary by Tate Channel follows Dean’s creative process as she plans the work at her Berlin studio. FILM seeks not only to invigorate debate about the threat that film is under but also to stand as a testament to the distinctive qualities of this unique medium.
