Art, Film, Toys (PG)


American Export


An evening with visual artist and winner of the 2019 Film London Jarman Award, Hetain Patel and guests, exploring Patel’s work through the lenses of art, cinema, and the toy industry. In between screenings of a number of his recent short films, including his afro-kung-fu-sign-language spectacle Don’t Look at the Finger, and The Jump – his Spider-Man homage featuring 17 of his family members, Hetain will be chatting with experts from the worlds of cinema and toys and games. This includes film director Andy Delaney, known for directing a number of iconic music videos for the likes of Lauryn Hill, Spice Girls, George Michael and Soul II Soul, as well as his recent feature film Love is Blind. Also joining Hetain on stage will be Billy Langsworthy, co-founder of Mojo Nation, an organisation supporting inventors in the toy industry, championing creativity across the sector and Deej Johnson – a writer and creative consultant, whose end clients range from members of The Magic Circle to brands such as Costa Coffee and Disney Store. The panel will be reflecting on Patel’s practice through their individual industry lenses, exploring the intersection of their worlds and the viability of artists interested to take a leap into other areas.


Hetain Patel is a visual artist working across film, photography, sculpture and live performance in galleries, theatres and online. Working collaboratively with artists across disciplines, and with family members and non-professionals, Patel enjoys working across multiple languages, culturally and artistically.


In recent years Patel has done Bruce Lee impersonations on stage at the Royal Opera House, completed commissions for Tate Modern and Sadler’s Wells, London, and made a working class Transformer robot from an old Ford Fiesta, with his dad. He designed part of a mini golf course for the Venice Biennale and has created a number of multi lingual dance theatre productions, including a commission for Candoco Dance Company, which continues to tour internationally. In 2013 Patel was invited to do a TED talk, which has since had close to 3 million hits, adding to a total of 48 million views of his videos and performances online.


This event is part of American Export a programme of projects exploring the ubiquity of American culture via post colonial and transatlantic prisms. Curated by Christina Millare, American Export is developed with support from CREAM at the University of Westminster, Grand Union and Arts Council England.

Cunningham image

Cunningham (U)

A cinematic experience about legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham. The film follows Merce’s artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in New York City to his emergence as one of the most visionary choreographers in the world.


Misunderstood and rejected by the dance world of his time, Merce persevered against all odds and developed a new dance technique and a new way of thinking about making dance performances in collaboration with composer John Cage and visual artist Robert Rauschenberg.


Rooted in both imaginary realms and actual life experiences, the film tells Merce’s story of becoming Merce through dance and from the point of view of the dancer. The film features excerpts from Cunningham’s works, re-imagined for cinema at interior and exterior locations. The precise choreography of the camera allows viewers to have an experience akin to “stepping inside” the dance; and the archival materials (16mm/35mm footage, audio, and photographs) evoke the charged atmosphere of the time, while Merce’s own diagrams and drawings provide insight into his creative process.

Hendrix and The Spook image

Hendrix and The Spook (15)

SoundScreen Film & Music Festival

UK Premiere


It’s September 24th, 1966 and as Jimmy James fastens his seatbelt on the New York runway, he’s full of excitement and hope. Next to him is Chas Chandler, the bass player of British band The Animals who only days earlier had spotted him playing in a club in Greenwich Village and was now taking him to London to launch his musical career. By the time the plane touches down Jimmy James has reverted to his original surname and has become Jimi Hendrix.


But Jimi has no idea that the other man he was travelling with, a mysterious suited man wearing dark glasses, would become embroiled in Jimi's own murder investigation. Fifty years on, The Animals and Jimi Hendrix not only remain top box office, the cause of Jimi’s death still remains an open verdict. While many stories continue to surround his death the open verdict does not rule out murder, neither does it rule out suicide: this film reveals the secret history of Jimi’s manager and British spy Mike Jeffery and explores why he was the prime suspect in the Jimi Hendrix murder enquiries. Yet, Hendrix and The Spook, with first hand testimony, reveals another more likely candidate for the cause of the death of one of the world’s greatest rock stars.

Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story image

Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story (15)

SoundScreen Film & Music Festival

UK Premiere


A feature-length documentary about the life and career of legendary blues musician Paul Butterfield. A white, teenage harmonica player from Chicago’s South Side, Paul learned the blues from the original black masters performing nightly in his own back yard. Muddy Waters was Paul’s mentor and lifelong friend, happy to share his wisdom and expertise with such a gifted young acolyte.


The interracial Paul Butterfield Blues Band, featuring the twin guitar sound of Michael Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, the rhythm section of Sam Lay and Jerome Arnold and the keyboards of Mark Naftalin, added a rock edge to the Chicago blues, bringing an authenticity to its sound that struck a chord with the vast white rock audience and rejuvenated worldwide interest in the blues.


The band’s first LP, released in 1965, was named “#11 Blues Album of All Time” by Downbeat. The only artist to perform at The Newport Folk Festival in 1965, The Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and the Woodstock Festival in 1969, Paul would continue to break new ground in the blues, and to stand up for racial equality, until his death at age 44 in 1987 of a drug overdose.


Through his music and words, along with first-hand accounts of his family, his band mates and those closest to him, Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story tells the complex story of a man many call the greatest blues harmonica player of all time. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Paul Butterfield is one of a handful of musicians inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Blues Halls of Fame, alongside other legendary artists including B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Billie Holiday and Eric Clapton.
