Performance + Q&A with Sandy Lieberson & Jay Glenn

Performance + Q&A with Sandy Lieberson & Jay Glenn

Details

“I like a bit of a cavort,” says Chas (James Fox), amoral wide boy on the run who hides out in the rambling Notting Hill pad of rock god Turner (Mick Jagger), merging identity with his host and hangers-on as he is inducted into their insular bohemian lifestyle.

Influenced by Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966) and the films of Alain Resnais, Performance introduced the world to the fractured storytelling and editing style of cinematographer-turned-director Nicolas Roeg. Co-director and screenwriter Donald Cammell can be credited for the mind-bending, debauched tone, which so outraged Warner Bros that the studio shelved the film for two years. The use of colour is extraordinarily vivid, while the soundtrack incorporates Jack Nitzsche’s unnerving score alongside songs that include Jagger’s Memo from Turner.

This special screening will be presented on 35mm and followed by a Q&A with Producer Sandy Lieberson and author of Performance: 50th Anniversary Book, Jay Glennie.
