Chris Petit Talk and Screening


Chris Petit, film-maker and critic, will be giving a talk in the gallery about current exhibition Nicolas Moulin's work followed by a screening of his seminal film, Radio On at the Showroom Cinema at 4pm, with an introduction by Petit.

More on Radio On:
Director: Chris Petit, 104mins. Cert 18. (1979)
Cast: David Beames, Lisa Kreuzer, Sandy Ratcliff, Andrew Byatt

Radio On is Chris Petit's classic music road movie, a landmark film capturing uneasy post-punk, pre-Thatcherite Britain. The film follows Robert on a trip from London to Bristol to find the truth behind his brother's suicide. An eclectic soundtrack features Lene Lovich, Kraftwerk, and Ian Dury.
