Belfast Film Festival and Sonorities present a new live-cinema performance by People Like Us titled The Mirror. This immersive audio-visual piece uses sampling and collage to explore concepts of inward reflection, outward reflection and projection into the beyond.

Working under the name People Like Us, Vicki Bennet specialises in the manipulation and reworking of original sources from both the experimental and popular worlds of music, film and radio.

Since 1991 British artist Vicki Bennett has been working across the field of audio-visual collage and is recognised as an influential figure in the field of sampling, appropriation and cutting up of found footage and archives. In 2006 she was the first artist to be given unrestricted access to the entire BBC Archive.
