Thu 10 Sep 2020
free (advance registration necessary)
Studio 74 may be temporarily closed, but were not going to let that get in the way of bringing arts and culture to Exeter. Welcome to Front Room Phoenix our way of beaming online creative activity straight to your sofa! We have teamed up with DocHouse to bring you an exciting, free film event.
Join us for a one-off online screening of the director’s cut of Brian Hill’s feature on UK Drill, and stay online after for a Q&A with the filmmakers and UK drill artist Drillminster.
Drill music is one of the UK’s most outspoken and unflinching genres, but what inspires its daring lyrics? And why does drill get such a bad rap in the media?
Meeting established artists and rising stars, as well as people working to combat knife crime and gang violence in the communities that shaped the genre, Terms and Conditions goes beyond the headlines to explore the roots and the impact of this form of self-expression.
Does Drill incite violence, or is it a mouthpiece and a creative outlet for disenfranchised young people who have been failed by years of austerity? Decide for yourself in this no-holds-barred, first-hand doc.
From musicians and gang members to victims of violence and industry professionals, discover a new narrative from a disaffected generation and understand the origins of one of the most talked about cultural phenomenon for decades.
This event is presented in partnership with Bertha DocHouse. You can find out more about their events on their website.
