An opportunity to see Indications of Guilt, pt.1 in the cinema setting, followed by an in conversation with Maud Craigie, hosted by Judith Noble.
Indications of Guilt, pt.1 examines the structures of American police interrogation and their relationship to fictional screen representations of law enforcement.
In 2017, Craigie travelled to Texas to train undercover in America’s widely used form of psychological interrogation. The technique has faced scrutiny in recent years due to high false confession rates. Craigie’s film combines staged and documentary methods to explore how psychological interrogation can function as a process for creating fiction, whilst ostensibly seeking to establish truth.
Indications of Guilt, pt.1 is shown in The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art 1 May - 4 June 2020 as part of their recurring open call platform, The South West Showcase, showcasing artists from across the South West region via the production of two solo exhibitions.
The artists research was supported by the Boise Travel Scholarship, Slade School of Fine Art, 2016.
