Fugue: Radio On @ Black Box, Belfast


Taking place as part of its Fugue Festival, Glass Eye Cine Club will present a screening of Christopher Petit’s seminal 1979 British road movie, Radio On, at Belfast’s Black Box on September 17.

Bolstered by an exceptional soundtrack featuring the likes of Bowie, Devo and Kraftwerk, the film – shot in black and white by Wim Wenders’ assistant cameraman Martin Schäfer – is a trip through the late 70s by way of a road trip from London to Bristol, with Robert a DJ (played by David Beames) attempting to investigate the suicide of his brother.

Following the screening, DJ Jon McKinley will team up with jazz/blues vocalist Ada Storm for an hour-long audio-visual performance that promises “reverb-drenched, story-telling vocals, beautiful brass & heavy dub beats in an intimate setting”.

Needless to say, this event comes highly recommended. Doors are at 7pm, tickets are £4 online or £6 on the door.
