Kojey Radical _ V&A_


V&A Friday Late x Kojey Radical short film


Kojey Radical, a short film directed by Dean Chalkley will be screened at the V&A this Friday (30 Nov), as part of  “Friday Late: Rising”.

The moving image piece will be presented between 20:30 and 21:30 as four screenings in the Hocchauser Auditorium, level one, Sackler Centre.

Friday Late: Rising is a free event and offers a chance to immerse in contemporary youth culture through workshops, performances, music, happenings... And of course Kojey Radical short film.

In this reflective, atmospheric and illuminating short film we journey into the mind of one of the UK’s most exciting, emerging, musical artists; Kojey Radical. A true creative in every sense of the word, Kojey is for many, becoming the voice of his generation.

His inner-city sound is pushing British music in bold new directions; uninhibited and with strong socio-political consciousness.

Friday Late: Rising full program runs from 18:30 to 22:00 throughout the whole building.

Friday nights ‘Kojey Radical’ short film world premiere was fantastic…The Photographers Gallery off Oxford St in Soho was the perfect place to hold this happening, what unfolded was something really special.

As the doors opened to the gallery Alex Rita Dj’d setting the scene in the dark red lit screening room. At one end of the room a projection of  bold red, yellow and green colours cycled through at an almost imperceivably slow shift. Once everyone in the audience was settled Natasha Plowright from The Photographers Gallery and Colm Forde from Doc'n'Roll Festival introduced Dean's latest short ‘Kojey Radical’...

Then we were rollin’...

The large sound system installed specially for the event by Sonny Evans enabled the films sounds track to boom out whilst the images unfolded in front of peoples eyes. The reflected light from the projection flicker lit the faces of the audience, all were taking it in…Even though the film is relatively short it’s pace is hypnotic and the piece is very atmospheric triggering a range of responses, it is deep but also funny at times too.

Straight after the screening Kojey and Dean were joined by Q&A host Stephanie McLaren-Neckles from creative platform Lets Be Brief. Through the Q&A many points were discussed, making of the film of course but then the conversations expanded wayout.

The night comprised of two screenings and two Q&A’s.

DocnRoll will release footage of the Q&A soon watch this space… The whole event was a MOMENT…A positive vibe… To everyone who came, helped and got a kick out of it...Thanks.
