The work addresses the taboo subject of dying, reflecting current attitudes in palliative care and society around end of life experience and the visibility of the dying person.
Liz Whitehead, Director, Fabrica, said: "Fabrica's goal in commissioning these works, and two previous art works on the subject of death, is to generate a positive change in awareness of death and dying.
"By removing the veil surrounding dying, simply and movingly Eastwood reveals that death may not actually be that frightening."
It was filmed over a one year period at the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, Isle of Wight and has been produced with the full consent and involvement of inpatients, outpatients and staff of the hospice.
A second work by Eastwood, Island, a single screen feature-length film was also created over the same period.
It will be premiered at London Film Festival on 7 October 2017 and screened at Fabrica on 20th November as part of the exhibition programme.
Steven Eastwood, Artist, added: "Art and film involving death and dying still has taboo status in terms of what western society can and cannot sanction.
"It is as though the image of dying is not something we should see, or even want to see.
"As a consequence, there is very little filmmaking done with the consent and collaboration of the dying person and there are few moving images of the very end of life.
"This extends all the way through culture. We don"t talk about death and dying in schools - there is no death education.
"Exhibitors are reluctant to programme content relating to death for fear of limited audience.
"And yet everyone has a personal experience with death and the fact that we will die is as every day and as natural an occurrence as birth."
The Interval and the Instant, by Steven Eastwood,takes place at Fabrica, Brighton, from 7th October until 26 November 2017. CLICK HERE for info.
