to manchester for the premiere of manchester international festival ‘film-gig’ commission massive attack vs adam curtis. well worth the train.

thought one: amazing talent behind one show doubled upon with horace andy, liz fraser, and the powerhouse of uva.

thought two: amazing audience numbers, 1,200 people each night for eight nights has to be a live cinema record?

thought three: if you deliver a two hour single screen edit while talking up ‘a new kind of event’ something went wrong

hope to see the piece develop, such potential between curtis threading of story and the multi-screen presentation of archive.
