Come Dancing

UK, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Experimental)

Director: Richard Knew

An invitation to fight and not dance as four men descend on a nightclub. It is only a matter of time before they attack. The action is an authentic rumble recorded through a surveillance camera. The voice-over acts as a postscript trying to understand the footage: 'real or theatre?' Our expectations are subverted: at the edge of the dance a fight breaks out, on the periphery of cinema is the surveillance camera.
