“The most important man in cinema. Period.” Sleazenation

Jeff Keen’s unique and imaginative filmmaking has outlived the various scenes in which it thrived – 60s counter-culture, punk and beyond. Making work of immediate power and raw intensity on a range of film stocks, this WW2 veteran, self-taught artist and pioneer of radical British independent filmmaking continues to defy categorisation. These 12 short films reveal the astonishing talent of a filmmaker not afraid to grapple with sex and war, or to experiment with visceral soundtracks and brutal animation techniques.
