Pop Goes the Easel (15*)
Directed by the late Ken Russell, this stylish mini-documentary focuses on artists Peter Blake, Peter Phillips, Derek Boshier and Pauline Boty and their obsession with the mass media and pop culture. Originally produced for the BBC TV series Monitor, at a time when the celebrity-aesthetic was still considered cutting-edge, Russellís vibrant barrage of images and sounds was greeted with widespread controversy.

UK 1962 Dir Ken Russell 44 min

+ British Sounds (15)
Commissioned in 1968 by London Weekend Television, Godard's exploration into Ford workers at Dagenham and students at Essex University was seen as too radical and never transmitted. A provocative, controversial, revolutionary tract.

UK 1969 Dir Jean-Luc Godard 52 min
