GAZWRX: The Films of Jeff Keen

Collected works by the visionary artist – one of Britain’s most important experimental filmmakers.

Jeff Keen began making films at the age of 37 when his art school film society needed things to show. And so began over forty years of unique, imaginative, irrepressible filmmaking. This release contains over 9 hours of films and videos by the visionary filmmaker from his 60s beatnik movies to his multi-layered videos of the 90s – a criminally overdue opportunity to explore the alternative cinematic world of one of Britain’s most important experimental filmmakers.

“Jeff Keen: the most important man in cinema. Period.” Jack Sargeant, Sleaze Nation.

Warning: these films contain flashing images which may be harmful to some viewers.
