Private Project

The Yellow Flame

Two academics, the Doctor and Pete, meet in a cafe and discuss the relationship between Avant-Garde film and the occult. As the discussion develops the fabric of the film decomposes and explores the form of the encounter. Eventually the Doctor gives Pete a roll of Super 8 film which he takes home and projects on a wall. As the film plays both Pete and the audience are liberated from bourgois hegemony.

Based on an obscure academic paper rejected by a prestigious peer reviewed journal.

Director Biography - Duncan Reekie

I have made over 40 short films and performances and I was the co-ordinator, producer and co-director of the highly acclaimed underground feature film 'Maldoror' (2000) which has toured extensively throughout Europe and America. My celebrated performances combine spoken word, music and experimental cinema.
Since 1991 I have been active in the international microcinema movement. I am a founder member of the Exploding Cinema, a film/video makers collective which holds London's longest running open access screenings of short film/video work. Between 1996-1999 I was a leading activist in the annual VOLCANO!! No-Budget Film and Video Festival. In 2007 my book 'Subversion : a Definitive History of Underground Cinema' was published by Wallflower Press.
In 2016 I moved to Bohemia in St Leonards on Sea, where I am currently teaching at Hastings College and performing at the Weird Shit cabaret club.
