Alice May Williams, Dream City – More, Better, Sooner (2016)
A meditation on the changing face of London’s landmark Battersea Power Station – smokestack energy colossus of yesteryear now rapidly transforming into an upscale lifestyle playground of tomorrow. Combining archive footage of the building in its industrial heyday with computer-generated projections of the form it will soon inhabit (or what, if things had been different, it might otherwise have become), Williams’ film concentrates our attention just as firmly on the present moment – on the rumble of construction and the grumbles of disruption that currently characterise the site.

ACMI and our good friends Melbourne Cinémathèque have temporarily suspend screenings at The Capitol. But don't despair. We've decided to launch our own Virtual Cinémathèque. Every Tuesday we'll release details of our weekly Virtual Cinémathèque via ACMI & Melbourne Cinémathèque social media. We’ll do our best to choose from freely available and accessible platforms - and for those of you who want to recreate the communal experience of watching as a collective - there is a free program called Metastream that allows you to invite your friends to watch at the same time, from your respective homes.
ACMI At Home
We recommend the best of ACMI to experience at home. Each week we're sharing our curatorial insight into different films, artworks, TV series or videogames, as well as where you can find them online. A perfect way to spend all those hours at home.
