Lead by Daniels, with Mikey Please, Kirsten Lepore, Tom CJ Brown, Julia Pott and David Wilson
It’s 2011 when Mark Duggan, a black British man was shot to death by police. Violent clashes between hundreds, mostly young rioters and English police followed. During these riots people were forced to stay inside their homes, including a group of young talented filmmakers and designers.
There’s a lot of uncertainty during the times of hiding and since they are not allowed to leave the house, the artists decide to spend their time on creating. Within these days Mikey Please, Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert, Kirsten Lepore, Tom CJ Brown, Julia Pott, David Wilson and others create their own alternative version of ‘The Terminator’. This ‘hiding’ turns out to foreshadow a distinctive working method of a group of very hands-on creators that is now unmissable in today’s animation and film landscape.
On Playgrounds In Motion, exactly 12 years later, these now-famous makers meet again in Rotterdam. Coming together in this one-of-a kind panel which they call: The Riot Club Reunion.
