The Rainbow Reels
Come down to the Film Archive this eve for the last exhibition opening of the year.
Hot damn – it’s a goodie! Tessa Laird, whose name you may recognise from her brilliant art writing over the years, has curated an exhibition from the Film Archive’s Home Movie Collection.
With such a wealth of material (over 30,000 titles) she created an arbitrary selection process based on the colours of the rainbow. The resultant Rainbow Reels are fantastic. There’s everyone from Opo to Chairman Mau….
Plus, performing tonight by special request are Alphabet Bomber – a band of 13 year olds who must be seen to be believed. They’re influenced by the Cramps and sheesh – it’s going to be a party!
See you tonight!
