Meeting People Is Easy
First UK public screening in 35mm
Directed by Grant Gee/95m

Large screen premiere of Grant Gee's critically-acclaimed feature
documentary following Radiohead's massive OK Computer tour.
Behind-the-scenes footage together with a relaxed graphic
sensibility gives a glimpse of a strange life on the road in this
adventurous and intelligent concert/tour film. Mainly shot on
mini-DV, transferred to 35mm.
"Visually the film is a masterpiece combining grainy black and
white with acidic colours, juxtaposed images and split-second
stills." Dazed & Confused

Sneakers: Size Isn't Everything + Goldie: When Saturn Returnz

An urban culture double bill comprising a special preview of Milk
Projects work-in-progress documentary, based on their successful
book Sneakers, looking at the cult of the trainer.
Plus the compelling film of drum'n'bass giant, Goldie, taking us
on a rollercoaster ride through his high-energy life. Directed by
John Akomfrah, in a visceral fusion of film and graphic design.
"The most resonant film about urban culture in recent years"
Time Out

Samurai Fiction
UK Premiere
Directed by Hiroyuki Nakano/111m

Stylish and quirky debut feature by Japanese bad boy promo
director Hiroyuki Nakano. A samurai story where Ozu meets Monkey
sans supernatural quirks. Intricate camerawork, and fluid fight
choreography, sees period oriental fighters accompanied by a
beautifully jarring mix of disco beats and rock-guitar solos in
this instant cult classic. The resulting brew plays wickedly fast
and loose with both Kurosawa and Indiana Jones.
"From the opening credits onwards this film is full of creativity
and strong graphic qualities but with an incredibly modern edge.
Compulsive!" Paul Smith, designer

Perfect Blue
Special advance preview
Directed by Satoshi Kon/80m

Hailed as the first feature-length Japanese animation film to
deal with contemporary rather than futuristic themes, Perfect
Blue is a brilliantly realised mix of social commentary and
disturbing psychological thriller from Satoshi Kon, former comic
writer and collaborator of Katsuhiro 'Akira' Otomo. Perfect
Blue's  protagonist is Mima, a pop star turned TV actress whose
career slide mirrors her psychological descent towards paranoia
and alienation. Kon deftly represents Mima's changing state of
mind, driving the film to a violent and unexpected conclusion
reminiscent of Polanski's Repulsion.

VOXIOO: tomato compilation
New work/approx 70m

A chance to view new directions and 'Underworld' connections - a
definitive collection of new and rarely-seen moving image work
from this influential design collective. "As if gibbering fools
we blundered, like stuffed mandrills, into talent and exposure,
fussed up and poncing off waving video tape and publications.
this is some of it. it's called voxioo, (pronounced) vwah-shoo."
Including Warchild, Moaner, Blue Velvet Boxing and Project X.

radio on [remix] + negative space
Directed by Chris Petit/26m+38m

Chris Petit pushes the spaces and form of the travelogue and
documentary into meditative, experimental territory. radio on
[remix] revisits his 1979 film, retracing the films' London to
Bristol journey combining the earlier work with the textures and
techniques of digital video to create a graphic essay about
memory, media and time
negative space explores cinema, space and landscape, framed by a
journey across the American mid-West, heading for Las Vegas. It
provokes argument about the emptiness of contemporary cinema,
contrasting it with that of Fassbinder, Rossellini, Godard and
Robert Mitchum.


wow + flutter 99

from the worlds of graphic design to new media. The first
