Movie - Finisterre

Hackney Picture House, London, England

Join us at the Hackney Picture House in London for a special 10th anniversary screening of Finisterre on April the 4th.

"Tickets are available online now for Picturehouse members here. Non members will need to call to reserve tickets at 08717042068 quoting the password ‘Heavenly Films Night’.

Finisterre is a beautifully shot and edited homage to London, soundtracked by songs from the band’s album of the same name. Directed by Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans in collaboration with Saint Etienne the film explores the attraction of the city through interviews with artists, musicians and kindred spirits that have inspired the band over the years. The one hour film premiered at the onedotzero film festival in 2003 and will be re-issued later this summer by the BFI as part of a Saint Etienne London trilogy film set.

The evening starts at 8pm, the film will be accompanied by the rarely screened trio of films about London’s disappearing cafes – Today’s Special, the premiere of a new short Banksy’s London and two Q&A sessions: one with Bob, Pete and Sarah, another with Paul Kelly & Kieran Evans. Afterwards from 10.30 to midnight Bob and Pete will be Djing in the bar. Should be a great night, tickets are limited so book soon to avoid missing out."

Movie - Nothing’s Too Good For The Common People: A Paul Kelly Retrospective

Cantor Film Center, New York, USA

"FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Over the last decade, Paul Kelly – already well known as a musician (as a member of the much-revered East Village) and graphic designer – has forged a reputation as one of the most distinctive British documentarians of his generation. Refining an unusually lyrical brand of psychogeography informed by pop-modernist aesthetics, he moves between the city symphony, film essay and companionate portraiture to fashion beautifully composed and deeply atmospheric evocations of overlooked places and individuals. Whether working in collaboration with the band Saint Etienne on a lushly ambient trilogy about London, or in his witty and empathetic films about the much-beloved Dolly Mixture and Lawrence of Felt, Kelly’s films are immediately recognizable and immediately lovable.

Nothing’s Too Good For The Common People is the first retrospective of this key filmmaker’s work to have been held anywhere. Organised by the New York-based Colloquium for Unpopular Culture (Kiss Me Again: The Life and Legacy of Arthur Russell; Leaving The Factory: Wang Bing’s Tie Xi Qu; A Cathode Ray Séance: The Haunted Worlds of Nigel Kneale) in collaboration with Chickfactor magazine, it will feature the US premieres of many films, introductions by a constellation of artists and musicians, and Paul Kelly himself in discussion with the director and writer Bilge Ebiri.

To mark Nothing’s Too Good For The Common People, there will be available for sale copies of a very limited-edition book designed by Rob Carmichael (John Cale, LCD Soundsystem, Animal Collective’s ‘Crack Box’) and featuring contributions by a wide range of writers, musicians and architectural historians including Jon Dale, Travis Elborough, Alistair Fitchett, Dan Fox, Joe Kerr, Stephin Merritt, Jude Rogers, and Peter Terzian."

DJ: Bob Stanley

Hangover Lounge

Lexington, London, England

Bob Stanley will be signing copies of his book Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Story of Modern Pop. It's an informative, amusing and passionate appraisal of the late-20th century's greatest art form, written with the warmth of a fan's beating heart and the insight of a critic's sharp eye. And Bob will be DJing. Given his previous DJ sets, that alone is enough of a reason to come down.
