What the F(ilm?) Screening: 24 Hour Party People
Free and open to the public. Cash bar.
Much of Jeremy Deller’s work examines the social meanings of popular music, especially British music of the 1980s and ’90s. 24 Hour Party People (dir. Michael Winterbottom, 2002) stars Steve Coogan as Tony Wilson—music mogul behind some of Manchester’s most successful bands, including the Happy Mondays, Joy Division, and New Order, and father of the music scene that would later be dubbed “Madchester.”
