A dystopian future London is the playground of a teenage gang leader in Stanley Kubrick’s stylish, controversial take on Anthony Burgess’s novel about violence and free will.
A Clockwork Orange is selected to coincide with Simon Pope’s Memory Marathon, screening on 7 September. Memory Marathon is an 80-minute film of a large-scale participative event in which artist Simon Pope walked a 26 mile marathon route through the five London boroughs that went on to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. During his 26-mile walk Pope passes through several familiar London filming locations, including the Thamesmead Estate, featured in A Clockwork Orange.
Memory Marathon was conceived and produced by Film and Video Umbrella, commissioned by the Olympic Delivery Authority and funded by the London Development Agency and Arts Council England.
This screening is part of a weekend of activity which includes In The Zone, a symposium at the White Building on Sunday 8 September which considers how the sports phrase 'in the zone' can be applied to other aspects of contemporary life.
A Clockwork Orange, dir. Stanley Kubrick, UK/USA 1971, 136 mins
