Backyard Cinema Screening: Awesome I Shot That
London’s favourite al fresco cinema is returning to Camden Market in August, celebrating music.
On 9 October 2004 the Beastie Boys played a sold out concert at Madison Square Gardens. 50 audience members were given camcorders to document the performance – and were under strict instructions to keep their cameras rolling at all times. The gimmick worked. Confronted with hours of amateur footage the film’s editor cherry picked the best bits and the resulting film deftly captures the energy of the show. Keep your eyes peeled for Ben Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor, the couple were enthusiastic audience members.
Camden Market’s Honest Burgers will be supplying the grub and a Meantime Brewery truck will be serving up fresh cold drinks.
