Issue 111 June 2017

Our featured artist this month really gets us on a gut level. So precise, but at the same time so graceful. Read more about Christina Mrozik and her work in our interview.

It’s a pleasure to be partnering with Sheffield Doc/Fest this year and yet again their programme is superb. We chat to Alex Whitley about 8 Minutes, as well as giving you our run-down of the festival in Filmreel. Visit sheffdocfest.com for the whole shebang.

We also had the honour of talking to Syrian maestro Omar Souleyman ahead of his appearance at Tramlines next month (Sun 23 July, 7:15pm, Folk Forest). A fantastic, singular musician and very strongly recommended as a live act.

This is our last printed mag before our customary summer break, but we continue to publish online during July and August, so connect with our social media accounts to keep up to speed. We tend to use summer to take stock and brainstorm new ideas, so if you want to connect with us on anything, it’s a good time.

We’ll see you back in print in September.
