Jeff Keen's unique and imaginative filmmaking has outlived the various scenes in which it thrived: the sixties counter-culture, punk and beyond.
Making work of immediate power and raw intensity on a range of film stocks (although always preferring 8mm: more oppositional, more disposable, less of a sell-out), this WW2 veteran, self-taught artist and pioneer of radical British independent filmmaking continues to defy categorisation.
The forty-plus films presented here are drawn from the various phases of Keen's output, and reveal the astonishingly tireless talent of a unique individual not afraid to grapple with sex and war, or to experiment with multiple screen presentations, visceral soundtracks and brutal animation techniques.
Truly inspired and inspiring, this collection is a testament to the irrepressible force that is Jeff Keen.
