THE THE announce details of nationwide screenings of their documentary feature ‘ The Inertia Variations’ and their first live shows in 16 years.
THE THE’s busy 2017 gathers pace with the announcement of a run of screenings for The Inertia Variations documentary at the ICA in London, Home in Manchester, Watershed in Bristol and Showroom in Sheffield.
Having received its world premiere at this year’s Gothenburg Film Festival, and UK premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Johanna St Michaels documentary about Matt Johnson, The Inertia Variations is set for a week long run of screenings in October at London’s ICA, Home in Manchester, Showroom in Sheffield, Watershed in Bristol and others. The 84-minute documentary, inspired by the poem of the same name by British-born, Los Angeles based poet John Tottenham, is centred around the Radio Cineola broadcast and within the film, through recitations of John Tottenham’s poetry, Matt Johnson examines his sometimes troubled relationship with celebrity and the creative process and, through the tragic deaths of his mother and two of his brothers, how bereavement has informed his work and outlook.
London premiere at the ICA on Friday 20th October with a showing of the film and Q&A with Matt Johnson and Johanna St Michaels, the documentary will then be shown twice daily on 21st, 22nd, 24th, 25th and 26th October. The documentary is accompanied later each day by screenings of THE THE’s Infected: The Movie, which was previously shown publicly for the first time in almost 30 years at the ICA in September of 2016.
