A film by Will Robson-Scott
“This film follows Jela, brought up in the heart of the East End of London in a Turkish and English family. He talks about his memories of growing up in the 80s and 90s and his time on the streets and on football terraces. Jela grew up fast, being immersed in football violence , skinhead culture , and hard drug use before his life spiraled out of control, now sober he looks to the future. The East End he grew up in has changed on the surface but many of the faces he grew up with remain the same. His struggles have made him what he is today and Jela is East London through and through.”
Peter Whitehead’s 1967 film exploring the explosion of English pop culture in the days of “Swinging London.” Syd Barrett takes care of the soundtrack and the film features Michael Caine, Mick Jagger, Julie Christie, Lee Marvin, David Hockney, and Vanessa Redgrave amongst others.

Tim Head opens up ‘The Daily Standard’ at Pure Evil Gallery in London, while New York sees some great group shows at Joshua Liner, Yossi Milo, and Jack Shainman.
Probably the first time we’ve ever used ‘cute’ on the site.

For those not there, this slideshow should suffice. Even if it’s only to admire how fantastic the lines on the BMW used to be.
