HIJACK FILM PRODUCTION works with moving image and sound in a variety of media and contexts, specialising in arts and science documentary film and media installation for galleries, museums and theatrical release. The co-directors GILLY BOOTH and CHRIS HORROCKS both trained in fine art, so ideas and context are integral to any hijack project.
GILLY BOOTH is an artist who works with moving image and sound. Her films and installations have connected modernist architecture, the settings of 1960s European film and environments with new inhabitants and histories. Her documentary techniques interrogate lived encounters between reality and fiction, and translate them across geographical locations and linguistic boundaries. The films/installatons re-visit abandoned sites, landscapes, archives, images, interviews, text and found footage, which are then re-mediated within a cinematic or installation context. These include ICA/London, Pompidou Centre/Paris, Museum of Modern Art/Tokyo, MOMA New York, The Museum of the Forgotten/Zurich, Venice Architecture Art Biennale/Italy and H.Q. im Loop/Zurich.
CHRIS HORROCKS is a writer and academic. He has published widely in the field of cultural theory, art and technology. His work has appeared in academic and popular books, radio, press and television. His publications include Introducing Foucault, Baudrillard and the Millennium, and Cultures of Colour. His recent book, The Joy of Sets (2019) is on the history of the television. He is currently writing a book on J.G. Ballard and Eduardo Paolozzi.
