RETROSPECTIVE: Richard Heslop: Post-Punk, Rave & Everything In Between
20:00 Sat 9 Jan 2016
Richard Heslop had a super-8 camera aged 10, and first worked on visual projections with the groundbreaking band 23 Skidoo in the early eighties. He studied at St Martins, where he met Derek Jarman and shot Imagining October, The Garden and The Last of England for him, as well as directing a number of award winning shorts himself. In the nineties he straddled both personal work, including funded shorts by the BFI and Channel 4, and commercial video work for artistes such as New Order, The Happy Mondays and The Shamen. He directed his first feature Frank in 2010, and in 2015 the experimental visual radio drama The Raft of Medusa, inspired by Jarman.
Richard will join us for a Q&A following the screening.
