Downtown 81 - FEAST Film Night

  • The Portico Gallery 23a Knight's Hill West Norwood SE27 0HS (map)

FEAST Film Nights are a volunteer run initiative from West Norwood FEAST, bringing together people who love film & community, in an area which has no cinema (yet)

Previous films have included Wild at Heart, Whiplash, Jodorowsky's Dune

The screening on the 24th October is Downtown 81

A rare real-life snapshot of ultra-hip subculture of post-punk era Manhattan. Starring renowned artist Jean-Michael Basquiat and featuring such Village artists such as Jame Chance, Amos Poe, Walter Steding and Tav Falco, the film is a bizarre elliptical urban fairytale not to be missed

Dj’s Ken Jones (Effra Sound) & Pete W (Soul Night) top and tail the movie fea­tur­ing a spe­cially cur­ated set of images from 80’s Manhattan/New York.
