The Old Hairdressers, Renfield Lane, Glasgow
Mondo Vernon and Burns – A history of Mondo films viewed
through the distorting lens of Vernon and Burns: a queasy combination
of visual savagery with audio sweetness. A special one-off screening
event as part of the Old Hairdressers Fantom Cinema. The film was edited
by Vilte Vaitkute and features a narrated essay by Anna McLauchlan.
“A film so debased should not only be restricted to people over 18
years of age, it should also be rejected by anyone with a modicum of
self-respect and by all nations that refuse contaminated and rotten
merchandise.” - review of Mondo Cane by the Catholic Film Office of France
“I fear you will never persuade the Americans to like Jacopetti –
they hate moral ambiguity and their black and white Protestantism
clashes head on into the catholic relativism built into every frame of
the Mondo Cane films.” - JG Ballard
“A catalogue of horrors…..a hymn to death and mutilation, embellished with a shrug and a giggle.” – Monthly Film Bulletin
Plus Joe Howe will present ‘Era Burp Mesh / Rumba Sphere / Re: Bum
Phrase / Mr Rebus Heap’, which is an algorythmically sequenced re-edit
of Kon Ichikawa’s 1956 anti-war film, The Burmese Harp made using Max
MSP – and the human-machine music of Anneke Kampman.
