I’M READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP
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.
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.
