NO JAPS AT MY FUNERAL 1980, video, color, sound, 60 minutes Directed by James Nares

NO JAPS AT MY FUNERAL is a deconstructive propaganda piece that demolishes the British version of events in Northern Ireland. It is an eloquent statement about brutality and victims, told mainly by Jackie, an IRA man whose personal account is intercut with images from British television. NO JAPS has the same formal properties as a typical TV “documentary”, but is aimed to show the bias of what is known on TV as “truth” - Gary Indiana, East Village Eye, Summer 1980.  This screening will be followed by a panel discussion with James Nares, Glenn O’Brien, and Christopher Wool. courtesy of James Nares
