Land mark live cinema performance that weaves a kaleidoscopic audio-visual journey around the world through documentary film footage, analog slides and 16mm to reveal a series of contrasting views

APB – All Points Between was a seminal live cinema project created by The Light Surgeons in 2001. It was a feature length performance which circumnavigated the world through a series of capsule narratives and audio visual tracks. Mixing social-political essay with digital art, the project responded to a range of global issues and different personal perspectives. It was also one of the first live digital art projects to respond to the immediate aftermath of 911.

The project incorporated The Light Surgeons short films Thumbnail Express and The City of Hollow Mountains and was woven together with electronic soundtrack by audio artist & composer Scanone. It was presented as a multi-screen theatrical performance in Theaters, Galleries and media art festivals. The technical production involved live video mixing, 35mm slides sequences, 16mm film projection and DJing.The performance was commissioned and developed by onedotzero festival and was toured internationally between 2001 and 2003.
