GAZWRX: The Films of Jeff Keen (BFI) in February

BFI have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of GAZWRX: The Films of Jeff Keen on 23rd February 2009. Born in 1923 and a soldier in World War Two, artist Jeff Keen – now aged 85 – began making films at the age of 37 when his local art school film society needed things to show. And so began over forty years of unique, imaginative, irrepressible filmmaking that has outlived the various scenes in which it has thrived: the 60s counter-culture, punk and beyond.

GAZWRX: The Films of Jeff Keen features 9 hours of restored and re-mastered titles by this filmmaker on a 4-disc DVD and 3-disc Blu-ray (1xBlu-ray, 2xDVD). RRP on both sets is £34.25. The sets comprise of 45 films and the following extra content:

  • Brand new interview with Jeff Keen
  • Art Flies Free (2000) – experimental documentary by Ian Helliwell
  • Jeff Keen Films (1983) – documentary with interview
  • 96-page booklet featuring paintings, drawings and collages by Jeff Keen plus articles by Tony Rayns, Ray Durgnat and Jack Sargeant

Additionally on 17, 19, 25 and 27 February, BFI Southbank presents four special screening events including Early Jeff Keen Films and Dr G’s Home Movies and a touring programme will be shown at cinemas around the UK.
