Join Richard DeDomenici for the world premiere of his shot-for-shot guerilla recreation of Sheffield-set dystopian drama Threads, filmed just two days before Doc/Fest with entirely local cast.
This special event is open for Festival Pass holders pre-selection.
In 1984, the BBC’s dystopic docudrama Threads depicted the nuclear Apocalypse in Sheffield, terrifying millions of viewers. The day before Sheffield Doc/Fest’s 25th Edition begins, artist Richard DeDomenici will remake several minutes of Threads in the very locations that the original show was shot, and he wants your help! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be part of Threads: Redux and join us for the World Premiere event of DeDomenici’s guerilla recreation on Saturday 9 June, featuring behind-the-scenes footage, the Redux screening itself, and all the unique absurdity and general hilarity that comes with DeDomenici’s live shows.
Limited tickets will also be available with the Live Cinema Summit ticket, including access to the two day Summit and selected live events.
