Celine Danhier's Blank City premieres in the UK this evening, presenting a fascinating look at the misfit cinema of the late 70s and 80s that emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous period of New York history. Made on shoestring budgets in collaboration with the pioneering musicians and visual artists that ruled downtown Manhattan, these stripped-down edits coined the phrase 'No-Wave' cinema. Whilst the punk scene of the same era enjoyed a much celebrated notoriety, this thrilling and confrontational underground film movement has never before been chronicled.
Set to a soundtrack of Patti Smith, Television, Richard Hell & Sonic Youth; Blank City captures the maverick spirit of the New York Underground that continues to be prevalent today. Featured players include actor, writer and director Steve Buscemi, Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Hip Hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, all captured on Super 8 camera wherever the directors could grab a shot.
Blank City will be screened at the ICA, London, from 2-15th March, the QFT Belfast from 6-8 March and The Cube, Bristol from April 30th - May 2nd.
Celine Danhier will also be hosting a Q+A at the Rio Cinema, Dalston at a special screening this evening.
