Podcast: Looking back at "Sweetback"

September 6, 2007

Tonight’s show is now available to download… (mp3 format, 28.5mb)

Continuing I’m ready for my close-up‘s exclusive run of online podcasts*…

In a show recorded live at the inaugural Resonance FM / Electric Sheep Magazine monthly film club at the Roxy Bar and Screen in London’s Borough High Street, Virginie Sélavy introduces a talk and Q & A conducted by Joel Karamath.
Joel, host of the ICA’s Uncut film night, looks at the career of Melvin van Peebles and his seminal film Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song.
As the talk was performed in a surround sound theatre with Joel & Virginie standing close to both the speakers and the recording device, there is unfortunately a pronounced echo in the playback, however sit back and imagine Joel is performing his speech with a megaphone at a political rally in the 1970s and suddenly it might feel a lot more authentic! Tonight’s show was recorded and edited by Alex Fitch.

*While Resonance FM moves studios across London… The podcast only shows will then be broadcast on FM later in the Autumn
