Encounters At The Cube: Presenting Captain Zip

Thu 18 November 2010 // 20:00

(Thu 18th Nov / 8pm / £5)

Captain Zip filmed the punk street scene in London from 1978 to 1981, completing nine short films, most of them shot on a clockwork Standard 8mm camera, with one lip-sync. Punk chat film on Super 8. These vibrant time capsules of one of the most colourful explosions of expression the streets of England have witnessed were largely edited in-camera and have become an important social history resource enabling an inspiring form of time travel to a less politically censored age. This will be a rare projection of all nine films in their original formats complete with swastikas, water pistol battle (on film), police intervention (on film), and original cement splices that could break at any time. The screening will be attended by Captain Zip. The seven silent punk films will be accompanied by punk tracks from a DJ.
