Spartacus Film Still

book now for one off film screening
in the underground city 'Mary Kings Close' Edinburgh

Friday 30 November 7-9pm

This is a once in a lifetime experience! The climax of Spartacus Chetwynd's new work made with the Collective's One Mile Programme.

Screenings will be held throughout Edinburgh's own eerie underground city 'Mary Kings Close'. The evening will be hosted by Spartacus and will include two simultaneous film screenings accompanied by live music.

The new commission 'The Call of the Wild' juxtaposes events in the wilderness of Lewis (Western Isles) with urban Edinburgh. Drawing influence from films such as 'Walkabout', 'Picnic at Hanging rock 'and the anthropological film 'Les Maitres Fous' (The Mad Masters, Jean Rouch, 1955).

Spartacus was invited by the Collective Gallery's One Mile Programme to spend September 2006 in Edinburgh developing a new art work in collaboraton with a variety of people met within a one mile radius during that time; they included students on a pattern cutting course, a knitting demonstrator and someone she dressed up as a chimp. They all feature in the film.
There are 4 screening times throughout the evening at 18:45, 19:15, 19:45 and 20:15. Meet at the Gallery from 6.30 for beer or bloody mary, you will be led to the Close in pre-booked groups.

Places are FREE but limited and must be pre-booked
