Conceived and created by artist Richard DeDomenici, Redux is a site-specific participatory project, which celebrates and critiques the cinematic heritage of the places it visits, by attempting to make shot-for-shot remakes of scenes from famous films, in the original locations that they were filmed.
DeDomenici works with local volunteers to star in his remakes – shot on a fast and furious schedule, with little more than a cheap digital camera and his wits. The footage is then edited within days of filming and screened directly alongside the originals, at a local premiere.
This film screening is introduced by Richard DeDomenici.
Richard has made over 60 such reduxes around the world since 2013, in collaboration with organisations such as Sydney Festival, West Kowloon Cultural District, National Theatre, British Council, Barbican, Forest Fringe, HOME, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, and most recently The Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts.
