72 Hour Lost Weekend

Watch the video forming the centrepiece of the weekend of performances at the former Braun factory

For Woman in the Machine at the former Braun factory, the original intention was for the interior of the building to be open to the public who would have been able to experience the DJs, live music, visual, performing and sonic art all together in this giant landmark over the course of a weekend. We were able to turn up the bass and light the shadows to hint at what could have been through the creation of this film, 72 Hour Lost Weekend.
