Al Pacino is coming to BFI Southbank

Salomé and Wilde Salomé

A unique double feature and in conversation with Al Pacino and Stephen Fry

21 September, 4:00 PM

Salomé

2013
Directed by Al Pacino
With Jessica Chastain
78 min

Oscar Wilde’s most controversial play is the story of a princess who lived in the time of Jesus. Salomé (Jessica Chastain) is in love with prophet John the Baptist, whom her stepfather, King Herod (Al Pacino), has imprisoned in a well for heresy. But her love is spurned, and after the king drunkenly promises the princess anything she wants in exchange for an erotically charged dance, Salomé puts Herod in a terrible position by demanding the head of John the Baptist – the only man the king fears.

It is a scintillating tale of lust, greed and betrayal that has spawned multiple stage productions, an opera by Richard Strauss, and influenced work by musicians including Nick Cave and U2. This stage production was filmed during its run at the Wadsworth Theatre in Los Angeles.

Wilde Salomé

2011
Directed by Al Pacino
95 min

This filmic collage captures the highs and lows of presenting a challenging work by one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Oscar Wilde. Staging the play live in Los Angeles, director Al Pacino tackles its problems and issues and helps discover a new star, Jessica Chastain, in the title role of Salomé. Pacino also grapples with Wilde’s need to express something utterly different from anything he had written before, and with finding a way to make a movie of the entire event. An unusual, revealing and avant-garde journey into the light and heart of Oscar Wilde’s masterwork.

Following the presentation of these films Al Pacino will be joined on stage by Stephen Fry ‎in a conversation that will be broadcast to cinemas across the UK.

Prices £35.00 or £30.00 concessions (BFI Members pay £1.50 less).
Please note that all tickets include both the plays and the Q&A.

BFI Patrons and Members enjoy priority booking to previews and events at BFI Southbank all year round as well as a great package of other benefits. Find out more at bfi.org.uk/supportus

Prince announces London Shepherd’s Bush Empire show

Prince announces London Shepherd’s Bush Empire show

Prince will play a show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

BBC 6 Music DJ Cerys Matthews announced that the singer would be performing at the venue tonight.

Tickets are first come, first serve with doors opening at 7pm and Prince on stage at 8pm.

The star has already played two shows at the Electric Ballroom in Camden earlier this week as part of his ‘guerrilla’ UK tour.

At a press conference at soul singer Lianne La Havas’ house, he promised: ‘We’ll work our way up, if people like us, to bigger venues.’

The Electric Ballroom has room for 1,000 people while Shepherd’s Bush Empire is slightly bigger and can fit 2,000 fans.

News of the London show will disappoint fans in Liverpool, many of which have been speculating over the weekend that Prince would be performing at the famous Cavern Club.

Prince will be playing with his band 3rd Eye Girl to support his upcoming album Plectrum Electrum.

Asked about rumours that he would be playing Glastonbury Festival in June, he said he wanted to live in the moment.

He explained: ‘I can’t think of the festival now.’

AGMP presents RAKIM – Live in Concert

The Greatest MC of all time

In 1986, Rakim started to work with New York-based producer-DJ Eric B. The duo—known as Eric B & Rakim—is widely regarded as among the most influential and groundbreaking of hip-hop groups, due in no small part to Rakim‘s technical abilities.

The duo’s first single, “Eric B. Is President” was a success and got the duo a contract with the fledgling Island Records sub-label 4th & B’way. The duo’s next single, the smash “I Know You Got Soul,” sparked early debate on the legality of unauthorized, uncredited sampling when James Brown sued to prevent the duo’s use of a fragment of his music.

Their first full album, “Paid In Full”, was released in 1987. causing a stir in the hip-hop music world due to its novel sound, approach, and subject matter. Rakim pioneered a practice previously unknown to hip-hop called internal rhyming. Already an important aspect of traditional poetry, where rhymes could be found throughout the bar of a lyric which added to the rhythmic complexity of the song: “I keep the mic at Fahrenheit, freeze MCs, make ’em colder/The listeners system is kicking like solar/As I memorize, advertise like a poet/Keep it goin’when I’m flowin’ smooth enough, you know it’s rough.” Instead of two rhyming syllables within two lines at the end of the lines, as we would find in the older hip-hop style displayed above, we have 18 rhyming syllables in just four lines. Rakim also introduced a lyrical technique known as cliffhanging and popularized the use of metaphors with multiple meanings. His songs were the first to really impart hip-hop music lyrics with a serious poetic device sensibility.

Eric B & Rakim went on to produce three more successful albums, all now considered hip hop standards.
