Taking The Dog For A Walk

24th June 2014 - Taking The Dog For A Walk

24th June 2014

I attend the Hackney premiere of TAKING THE DOG FOR A WALK (UK 2014 Dir. Antoine Prum)
An in-depth exploration of the British free improvisation movement, from Derek Bailey to the present, TAKING THE DOG FOR A WALK goes to the heart of a committed, unique music community.
Partially shot in and around Hackney, a home for this particular musical form both historically and now, Antoine Prum’s film doubles as a kind of comment on the role of East London in shaping important creative movements, as well as providing the most loving and detailed tour around the highways and byways of free improvisation in Britain, celebrating its major figures, and led by interviewer Stewart Lee. It is an ace film.
L-R: Tony Bevan, Antoine Prum and Stew at Dalston Rio cinema screening.
