A Home Movie by Jeff Keen
A Home Movie by Jeff Keen

For one night only (unless we inveigle them into doing more), the team of Resonance’s long missed Sunday night show Midnight Sex Talk are reunited on air for a special episode of I’m Ready for My Close-Up
Alex Fitch talks to Tania Glyde and Kim Morgan about the films of experimental filmmaker Jeff Keen, whose work is about to be showcased in four programmes at the BFI Southbank over the next couple of weeks and in a definitive DVD box-set. Keen’s work ranges from comic book-inspired free-for-alls featuring cameos by The Flash, The Spirit and Mickey Mouse, to vaguely erotic scenes of debauchery in squats, and apocalyptic visions in ancient quarries.

10.30pm 12/02/09, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at www.resonancefm.com

Screenings of Keen’s work are on at the BFI Southbank on the 17, 19, 25 and 27 February 2009 – more info on the BFI website.

audio Listen to the podcast of the discussion of Jeff Keen’s work + Alex Fitch talks to Wajid Yaseen, the artistic director of Ear Cinema, about their touring project Late Noon Sun, which uses silent movie tropes and iconography in a haunting theatrical installation about murder and magic that combines projection and performance in an immersive 360-degree experience.

Late Noon Sun is next on at The Colchester Arts Centre on 18 February 2009. For future performances visit the Ear Cinema website for more info.

Electric Sheep Magazine Autumn 08

In our autumn issue we look at cruel games, from the politics of human blood sport in the Corman-produced ultra-violent Death Race, to sadistic power play in the disturbingly funny Korean thriller A Bloody Aria, fascist games in German hit The Wave and Stanley Kubrick’s career-long fascination with game-playing. Plus: interview with comic book master Charles Burns about the stunning animated film Fear(s) of the Dark, preview of the Raindance Festival, reviews of Tarsem’s The Fall and Wong Kar Wai’s Ashes of Time Redux. And don’t miss our fantastic London Film Festival comic strip, which surely is alone worth the price of the issue!

The magazine is no longer available and we are no longer published by Wallflower Press.

Also in this issue: Compass of Mystery Festival, Carl Dreyer’s Vampyr, Jan Å vankmajer’s Alice and a Seeing Double review of Alex Proyas’s Dark City!
