To coincide with the fabled alignment of the sun in Milton Keynes, on Midsummer, along three of the city’s boulevards, Inheritance Projects present a night of light invocations conjured through the medium of artist-film.

Three of Derek Jarman’s rarely seen Super 8 films will be screened alongside works from the Video Space programme My Body in the Heather, curated by Inheritance Projects and running from 7 – 27 June 2012.

The evening will include 16mm projections of films by Sarah Pucill and Lucy Reynolds.
