Hollywood – Lust for Power

Moguls – greed, avarice, energy and raw talent. The men who created Hollywood had all this and more. The story evolves from the discovery of the village itself to the death of the last mogul and the ascendance of television. It’s a tale of adventure and determination and a lust for power.

Knights Electric

Told with a remarkable fluency and gusto the story follows four punk lads making a sortie into an amusement park where they antagonise other customers and come upon a group of teenage girls. However, they are consistently thwarted by the apparition of four spectral youths – the 'Knights Electric' – who ultimately squire the girls away. (BFI Newsletter) Catalogued by the British Film Institute as an iconic memoir of the 1980s, this short theatrical film (35mm Anamorphic/Dolby Stereo) is regarded as a forerunner of the Music Video. The ever-popular soundtrack features pieces by Blondie, John Foxx, Madness, Gary Numan, The Pretenders and many more.
