THE PINK FLOYD & SYD BARRETT STORY

(2001, 50 mins, Otmoor Productions, Directed by John Edginton)

Filmmaker John Edginton's acclaimed documentary sets the controls for the heart of the Syd - and presents a stunning portrait of rock's most enigmatic acid casualty. Startlingly candid interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright together with impossibly rare footage of Barrett at his most creative and vulnerable. There will also be some ultra-rare early Floyd footage presented as a special bonus.

ROBYN HITCHCOCK: SEX, FOOD, DEATH... AND INSECTS

(2008, 60 mins, Otmoor Productions, Directed by John Edginton)

This is the World Theatrical Premiere of the Director's Cut of this exhilarating canter through the idiosyncratic world of Robyn Hitchcock. Friends (including Nick Lowe, REM's Peter Buck and LedZep's John Paul Jones) interact with Hitchcock as he cuts up, rocks out and pontificates on the universe according to Hitch. The film is as quirky, funny, provocative and musically stimulating as its impish subject.

Conversation between films with filmmaker John Edginton

ALL MY LOVING

(1968, 50 mins, Isolde/Voiceprint, Directed by Tony Palmer)

A special 40th anniversary screening of enfant terrible Brit filmmaker Tony Palmer's searing time capsule of the State of the Rock Union at the birth of the counter-culture. Instigated by John Lennon, this film featured specially shot footage of the Beatles, Floyd, Hendrix, Who, Cream, Zappa, Donovan et al juxtaposed with shards of the disintegration and revolution that was rocking the establishment/ Considered too seditious for the USA at the time, this film still provokes intense reactions.
