Dangerous Knowledge: film, media and politics

In this talk David Malone examines the work of the documentary filmmaker in the digital age and how global geopolitics is affecting artistic expression in the 21st century.

David Malone was born in North Shields, England in 1962. In his mid-20s he embarked on a career as a documentary maker at the BBC following in the footsteps of his father, Adrian Malone, whose work included The Ascent of Man with Jacob Bronowski, and Cosmos, with Carl Sagan. At the BBC he developed what the critics called a "disturbingly lyrical" style and established a reputation for television of the highest quality. Since becoming an independent filmmaker he has continued to produce and direct single films and series for both the BBC and Channel Four.

His series Testing God was described by The Times as "moving and startling - as close to poetry as television gets." The sequel series, Soul Searching, was described as being "good for the soul of television itself.”

More recently David has also begun presenting his own films including High Anxieties -The Mathematics of Chaos and the feature length film Dangerous Knowledge, both for BBC4.

David Malone is the author of The Debt Generation and the Golem XIV blog http://golemxiv-credo.blogspot.com/
