Adam Roberts | Remake
5th July 2012 18:00 – 21:00
Adam Roberts’ Remake, reshoots the 1960s Italian grindhouse horror film Seddok, l’erede di Satana by Anton Giulio Majano scene for scene with the later dubbed soundtrack, but minus the presence of the film’s characters.
The story centers around a stripper who has been horribly disfigured in a car accident. Whilst contemplating suicide she meets professor Levin who offers to heal her with a secretly developed atomic wonder drug that is able to regenerate damaged skin, but which lead’s to a spine-chilling result. Levin’s growing love for her ultimately leads to a string of blood-curdling murders.
The evening will include a round table discussion with the artist, Steven Ball of the British Artists Film and Video Study Collection at Central St Martins, Roger Clarke, film critic and author of A Natural History of Ghosts, artist film maker and curator Luciano Zubillaga and Gordon Shrigley, founder of Filmarmalade.
Adam Roberts recently screened work at the Hayward Gallery, London; Performatica, Mexico; the Zodiak Festival, Helsinki and at the Filmhuis, Den Haag. He was born in the United Kingdom and lives and works in London.
