2022          The Lock-in

The Lock-in never ends. Consisting entirely of pub footage from the British soap opera ‘EastEnders’, it is endless inasmuch as its source is endless and its makers living.

The Lock-in premiered as a 96-hour ‘working-week’ installation as part of Conditional Cinema at Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, Germany, from May 5 to 8, screening day and night without pause or repeat. This will show again throughout July at the Barbican Centre, London.

In June 2022, The Lock-in tours the real pubs of London's East End. Each venue screens a different decade in a day, with an average screening duration of ten hours. Attendance is free for drinkers.
