DREAMS AND OTHER NIGHT FEARS
Hermes Pittakos (2012)
Hermes Pittakos is a recent London College of Fashion graduate with a BA in Make-up and Prosthetics for Performance. Dream Archive Vol. 1-4 is a film showcasing his work. The film follows a mysterious protagonist (played by Ron Athey) into his dreams, where he experiences aspects of his psyche through meetings with strange beings created by Hermes Pittakos using makeup, wigs and prosthetics. Each dream sequence is inspired by one of the four elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The original script and concept came from Hermes’ personal experiences of sleep-paralysis. He has used his dreams as inspiration to create a fictional world filled with mythology, ancient rituals and surrealist characteristics.
THE BRITISH ARE CUMMING: SELECTED SELF IMPROVEMENT FILMS BY PAUL KINDERSLEY
Paul Kindersley (2012)
Paul Kindersley is a London-based artist known for his performance work “Albert; Sketch for a Ballet” and his surreal online make-up tutorials. His recent video work has veered into self-improvement films and music videos. We have worked with Paul to put together a short programme of his recent self-improvement films, including the low-fi, high-brow bedroom compliment operas, for your delectation.
ONE MINUTE VOL. 6
Kerry Baldry (2012)
We are very pleased to welcome back artist and filmmaker Kerry Baldry who has curated another collection of artists’ moving image pieces all running under sixty seconds. Entitled One Minute Volume Six – we screened Volumes Four and Five back in 2011 – the project features a wide range of material taking in a whole variety of styles and imagery. Audiences can expect to be challenged, provoked and entranced by the wealth of visual artistry on display.

The London Underground Film Festival 1st – 4th December
Celebrating the “obscure, no budget, low budget, genre and genreless”, the London Underground Film Festival is back at Bloomsbury’s Horse Hospital for another carnival of work originating from the lesser known fringes of cinema.
Featuring themed sessions ranging from the occult and witch-house aesthetics, to a talk/rant from Underground Cinema luminary and all round savant Duncan Reekie (who also curates an evening) via a documentary tribute to the musical landscape of Birmingham, the festival promises to be a treasure trove of undiscovered gems.
The Festival runs from the 1st to the 4th December and tickets are available via the website.
