Valparaiso is a city defined not only by arts and culture, but it is also a marvel of improvised urban design and unique architecture. Also called “the jewel of the pacific” or “Valparadise”, Valparaiso is composed of more than 200 different hills where some of the most audacious artists inspire to create their art.  Valpi – is horizontally segmented, creating an immersive yet abstracted chronicle of both the multifaceted layers of human life in this place and the politico-cultural fractures hidden beneath the surface. (from AFW programme notes by Sebastian Vaccaris)

In and Out a Window

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 13 mins, 2021, 16mm

 ‘The literal frame of a window overlooking a small garden becomes the scene through which Richard Tuohy’s film exploits the myriad plastic potentialities of the cinematic frame. Immersive and stroboscopic,In and Out a Window offers its own variations on cinema’s mechanical segmentations of space and time, opening up a portal to undiscovered dimensions and new phenomenologies.’  (from NYFF film festival catalogue)

A constant stream of tiny collisions – in cinema just as in life. Filmed in one breath in Melbourne, Tijuana, Doha, Riga, Vilnius, Kaliningrad and Moscow (before the war).

Like a Lighthouse

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 12 mins, 2022, 16mm

… and then sometimes all the things of the world shout together all at once ‘look at me’ … like everything is a lighthouse beckoning to be seen.  Filmed en route to Australia’s southern most point – the lighthouse at Wilson’s Promontary.

Bus, Turning

Barcelona, immediately after the independence referendum. Shot on black and white film  using a re-invented colour separation technique. Dedicated to the spirit of independence everywhere!  Constructed at Crater Lab.

Self Portrait with Bag

Dianna Barrie and Richard Tuohy, 6 mins,  2020, 16mm

A camera-less portrait of the artist. Super 8 cartridges placed inside a black cotton bag, the film advanced via a hand crank. The tiny gaps in the fabric weave make for dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of tiny pinholes.

West, Before Dying

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 30 mins, 2023, 16mm

A ‘work in progress’ screening of a new long form expanded cinema piece filmed in the outback of far Western Australia and constructed in residence at Crater Lab, Barcelona.
