3 Minute Wonder - The Long Weekend
Monday, 18th to Thursday, 21st May 2009
7:55pm to 8pm
3 Minute Wonder is a showcase for short films from new and upcoming writers and directors on Channel4. They run each day, usually from Monday to Thursday, with each week's films linked thematically.
The Long Weekend is a dynamic celebration of film, music, performance and visual art, set within the iconic architecture of Tate Modern. This year's festival is inspired by the influential art movements, Arte Povera and Post Minimalism and their legacy of merging art and life together by using humble, everyday materials and viewer participation.

Episode 3 - Jannis Kounellis 'Untitled'

Episode 4 - Paola Pivi
Her work is playful, irreverent and sometimes perplexing. She uses a huge range of mediums: sculpture, installation, photography, people, fish in jumbo-jets. And for the Long Weekend the medium will be sound... now that sounds like a scream that does.
